The Houston Climate Movement is leading the way for local action on climate change. Texas, and Houston particularly, faces unique risks and challenges due to the impacts of climate change, from flooding to heat to droughts and more.

Dr. Stephanie Thomas of Public Citizen will provide an overview of the risks we face, and she will discuss the emerging opportunities for our city and region to take action to reduce carbon emissions and to increase our resiliency to climate-related disasters. Dr. Thomas will also share ways for you to join in the movement to advocate for local action.

Rosanne Barone has led campaigns for the development of renewable energy and has trained college students in civic engagement. Rosanne relocated to Houston to join TCE in 2017 and is motivated by the challenges facing Texans in the fight to protect public health, clean air, and clean water.
