The LWVUS has selected Global Climate Change as one of two top priorities and has the following goals:
  • Increase awareness of climate disruption and adaptation policy initiatives
  • Increase the activist base
  • Increase advocacy supporting climate adaptation policies
  • Coordinate with Oxfam America on targeted state strategy
  • Organize public outreach activities

With this in mind, at the LWVAL May, 2009 Convention, Joyce Lanning, Natural Resources Chair presented a program on Climate Change and provides the following excerpts and resources.
