Tomorrow, the Senate climate bill draft is finally being released tomorrow. 6 months ago, we saw the released version of the House draft climate bill. That bill went through a great deal of changes, and didn’t pass until late June, nearly 3 months after it was released. So we’ve got a long way to go, and there will be a lot of moving parts. As both an activist on the ground and a blogger, I’ll be writing both about the efforts of my group UMD for Clean Energy, giving updates on significant changes to the content and timeline for the Senate bill, and providing analysis of the bill, whats good, whats bad, where it’s okay to give ground, and ground we need to hold or fight for.
If you happen to live in Maryland and have access to the radio station 95.5, myself and a couple other members of UMD for Clean Energy will be interviewed about our local campaign. However, we’re going to also plug the Senate bill, the October 24th 350.org international day of action, and tell people to support both. 95.5 is one of the most popular radio stations in the DC/Prince Georges County area.
