Green New Deal town hall Friday
At 6:30 p.m. Friday, there will be a Town Hall to educate the Idaho Falls community about the Green New Deal.
The meeting will be held in the Smith Chevrolet Community Room, 3477 Pioneer Dr., Suite 200, Idaho Falls. Parking is in the back.
In October 2018, U.N. climate scientists put out a groundbreaking report that told us we have 12 years to transition our economy off of fossil fuels to avoid global social collapse, town hall organizers said in a news release.
"When the Green New Deal was catapulted to the center of American politics in November 2018, we opened a once in a lifetime window of opportunity to take action on climate change," organizers said in the release.
The event is co-sponsored by the Idaho Falls Progressives and the Unitarian Universalist Church in Idaho Falls.
