    During this monologue play done by Carolyn Coit Dancy, you will learn in Rachel’s own words how she came to write Silent Spring. It is rare that a single book changes the course of history, but Silent Spring did exactly that. In her book, Rachel Carson sounded the alarm about the dangers of uncontrolled use of pesticides. The outcry that followed its 1962 publication forced the banning of DDT and spurred revolutionary changes in the laws affecting our air, land and water.

    To Change Everything, We Need Everyone The Rochester People’s Climate Coalition will kick-off a climate-focused Earth Month with a forum: “New York: The State of Climate Action” that brings two New York State experts to town:

    Mark Dunlea is chair of the Green Education and Legal Fund and helps coordinate the statewide campaign to transition to 100% renewables in NYS by 2030. He will provide an update on state efforts around renewable energy, including a new study just announced by the Governor. He will also discuss state legislation for a carbon tax; the Attorney General's effort to investigate the fossil fuel industry role in promoting climate denial; divesting the state pension funds from fossil fuels; and, Governor Cuomo's $7.6 billion bailout of the nuclear industry

    Elizabeth (Betta) Broad is the Outreach Director for the New Yorkers for Clean Power campaign, working to accelerate the transition to a renewable energy economy in New York State. She will provide information on some of NYCP's current priorities including on the ground organizing and expansion of electric vehicles, community solar, renewable heating and cooling and energy efficiency. She will also give an update on her work with Citizens for Local Power to create a Community Choice Aggregation in the Mid-Hudson. A resident of Kingston, she serves on the Kingston Conservation Advisory Council, the Kingston Climate Smart Commission and the Ulster Climate Smart Committee.

    Following the main speakers and Q&A on their presentations, local organizations will provide concrete opportunities for everyone to take action to make a difference at local, state and federal levels.
