In Wake of Sandy, Rep. Markey to Host Emergency Meeting to Protect Massachusetts from Climate Change

Will be joined by constituents, lawmakers, leaders in climate change impacts, solution

MEDFORD, MA. – Superstorm Sandy is the latest example of climate change contributing to extreme weather. With Sandy expected to cost between $30 and $50 billion, the storm’s devastating impacts should be taken as a warning for Massachusetts and New England. As temperatures and sea-levels rise and storms become more severe, many of Boston’s best-known landmarks – Faneuil Hall, Quincy Market, North Station, Copley Church – will be threatened by major weather events. Congressman Edward J. Markey (D-Malden) will hold an emergency meeting calling for immediate action in Congress to protect Massachusetts and the region from the devastating impacts of extreme storms fueled by climate change.

WHAT: Emergency meeting on climate change threat to Massachusetts, New England

WHO: Congressman Edward J. Markey (D-Mass.), dean of the Massachusetts Congressional delegation
- Kevin Knobloch, President, Union of Concerned Scientists
- Mindy Lubber, President and CEO, Ceres

WHEN: Sunday, November 4, 2012, 11 A
