A national volunteer group called “Citizens Climate Lobby” is looking to form a local chapter in Sturgeon Bay this year. The organization’s mission is to empower everyday people to work together on climate change solutions. Member and geologist Roger Kuhns, who is heavily active in environmental issues impacting Door County, says plans are to start forming the group within the next month or so.
The Citizen’s Climate Lobby has over 400 local chapters in the United States. Kuhns says the group is currently building support in the U.S. Congress for national bipartisan solutions to climate change.
