Energy, Jobs, Climate

Candidate Forum Set for October 20


Littleton — Congressional candidates are being given an opportunity to explain their positions to New Hampshire voters on climate change, clean energy and green jobs for the Granite State.

The New Hampshire Carbon Action Alliance will host the New Hampshire Climate Forum: Clean Energy, Green Jobs & Climate Change on October 20 at the Radisson Hotel in Manchester.


All six Congressional candidates have been invited to speak at the Forum and answer questions from the audience.


The Climate Forum will address these issues:

           • New Hampshire Climate Change Impacts
           • National Security & Energy Independence
           • Renewable Energy, Energy Conservation & Efficiency
           • Clean Business Incentives & Green Job Creation
           • Sources of NH Greenhouse Gas Pollution

           • EPA Regulatory Authority


UNH’s Carsey Institute reports that more than half of those surveyed said that “climate change is happening now and is caused mainly by human activities.”


“Climate change affects all of us -- Republican, Democrat and Independent,” says Farrell S. Seiler, chairman of the group. “Legislation and policy solutions to address climate change and create green jobs should seen as opportunities to build and strengthen our economy and environment.”
