From the Citizens Climate Lobby:
Gary Schneider and Linda DeLap, co-leaders of the Morristown chapter of Citizens’ Climate Lobby, are enthusiastically collaborating with Carrie Cullen, a summer fellow of the organization Put A Price On It.
As Carrie explains, “Put A Price On It mobilizes young people to advocate for strong and fair carbon pricing policies at the state and national level.”
Carrie recently completed her third year at Emerson College in Boston, MA, majoring in film production. She became concerned about climate change when her high school teacher showed a documentary about melting glaciers during a class days just after Hurricane Sandy.
It was then that Carrie realized the deadly impacts of climate change on both her home state and her generation. With this impetus, she decided to pursue a career in environmental documentaries, hoping to create powerful imagery that educates and empowers others to take action.
While home in Morris County for the summer, she has arranged for screening of an episode of National Geographic’s Years of Living Dangerously and a panel discussion.
Morristown Unitarian Fellowship’s Green Earth Ministry will host the program, entitled Priceless, on Tuesday, Aug. 8, 2017, from 7 to 9 pm. The public is invited. There is no charge, although donations to the Fellowship will be appreciated.
