Statistics show that nearly 70% of Americans think the federal government is doing too little to address climate change. Despite this overwhelming consensus among citizens, the government continues to avoid taking aggressive action to protect the environment. Why is that?
Part of the problem is our awful, choose-one voting system that incentivizes candidates to appeal to a small base of support and doesn’t give elected officials real accountability or a strong mandate to govern.
Join us on August 13th for a discussion about how a better way of voting—approval voting—would help advance the environmental movement and create a political environment where real change could be enacted.
We’ll be joined by Michael Ruvinsky, CES board member, and Christine Morshedi, Group Leader for the San Diego County North Inland Chapter of the Citizens’ Climate Lobby.
