Please Register here for this event.

Come join us, to get a handle on what we can do to move New Jersey back into the forefront of America’s efforts to combat Climate Change.  We will meet on Tuesday, July 26, 2016, at 6:30 PM in Room 202, Hepburn Hall (straight in from the main gate on Kennedy Blvd) at NJCU’s Main Campus.

This event is in two parts – Presentation + Film 🙂

FIRST, we will hear an analysis of RGGI, and New Jersey’s role in the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative –  The Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI) is a nine-state market-based collaboration to reduce Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions from power plants. Governor Christie withdrew New Jersey from RGGI in 2011. More here –https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Regional_Greenhouse_Gas_Initiative
