#DamienTalks 41 – Chanell Fletcher and the Next Steps for Fighting Climate Change

Welcome back to #DamienTalks. Today, #DamienTalks with Chanell Fletcher, the associate director of Climate Plan. With the the California legislature passing and the governor signing new legislation this year furthering the state’s efforts to clean the air and slow global warming, we discuss what’s next for the movement to impact man-made climate change.

#DamienTalks

We try to cover both bases: what should be done from a policy perspective and what impact will existing laws have on people’s day to day lives. Last we discuss what you and I can do to improve the environment and fight climate change in our own lives.

Good news! Smart transportation choices are a big part of the solution, both in terms of policy and in terms of what we, as individuals, can do.

We’re always looking for sponsors, show ideas, and feedback. You can contact me at damien@streetsblog.org, at twitter @damientypes, online at Streetsblog California or on Facebook at StreetsblogCA.
