A gathering in Bienville Square with speakers talking on these special topics: sea level rise, tropical diseases, climate justice, the threat of coal ash, and waterfront properties & insurance rates. Exhibitors will be featuring their organizations and support for common-sense climate change solutions in the Mobile Bay coastal community. We will also be sharing written responses from local political candidates answering the 4 key questions on our mind:

  1. How will you prepare the Mobile Bay area for the impacts of climate change (rising sea level, increase in vector-borne diseases, more frequent and higher intensity storms, etc.)?
  2. How will you transition the Mobile Bay area off of fossil fuels into renewable energy resources?
  3. How will you increase local spending into renewable energy?
  4. What is your plan for replacing the jobs that will be lost in the necessary and urgent switch to less deadly forms of energy?
