Marlborough's Change Climate Change in the New York Times
Change Climate Change is a student club at Marlborough that seeks to curb climate change through appeals to legislators regarding specific pieces of legislation. Last year they facilitated a letter-writing campaign regarding cap and trade bills, and this year they have attended a rally downtown, and club president Clara '18 attended the COP21 climate talks in Paris. Partnering with the Natural Resources Defense Council, the girls are planning on advocating for Los Angeles ordinances regarding building emissions later this year.
Recently the club has been networking to find meaningful legislation to support, and Clara reached out to New York Times environmental reporter Andy Revkin, who started a dialog with the club, referred them to helpful resources, and mentioned them in his "Dot Earth" blog on March 6.
