Sierra Club panel on Transportation & Climate Change

Transportation & Climate Change: What's tolling got to do with it?
Monday, March 24th, 7-8:30pm. REI - Seattle

Climate change is real, it's here, and it is quickly taking over as the greatest environmental challenge of our time. In Washington State, the majority of our global warming pollution comes from the transportation sector. This month's Cool State Forum will discuss variable tolling as a solution to our transportation woes. The panel will also tackle the tough question: is tolling an equitable solution for our communities?

Our expert panelists include:
Representative Judy Clibborn, House Transportation Chair
Eric De Place, Sightline Institute
Mark Hallenbeck, Director of UW Transportation Research Center
Mark Muriello, Assistant Director of the Tunnels, Bridges and Terminals Department within the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey
Facilitating the discussion will be Erica Barnett, reporter for The Stranger.

There will be time for questions in this 1 ½ hour forum. Please join this lively discussion and help kick off the 2008 Cool State Campaign!

Please RSVP to help us plan ahead. Email or call the Sierra Club at 206.378.0114 x308 or Jessica.eagle@sierraclub.org.
