On Thursday, January 10, CAAV members screened a National Resource Council (NRC) video with Harrisonburg City Council members at Clementine Cafe. Climate Change: Lines of Evidence explains the lines of evidence that have built the current scientific consensus about climate change and its causes. The video covers the first of three parts presented in the NRC booklet, Climate Change: Evidence, Impacts, and Choices, which was distributed to each of the attending council members.
In the way of tangible actions, CAAV urged the council to approve the retrofitting energy efficiency plans for two public buildings submitted by ABM. The improvements offer substantial energy savings and a guaranteed payback in 12 years.
