Wednesday, January 12, 6pm, North High Brewing [Short North], 1288 N. High St.

The Columbus chapter of the international grassroots advocacy group Citizens’ Climate Lobby has launched a monthly speaker series, “Ales and Climate Tales,” that will feature local scientists and experts on environmental issues. The second presentation of this series will be held Wednesday, January 12, 6pm, at North High Brewing’s Short North location, 1288 N. High St.

Spencer Dirrig of the Ohio Environmental Council [OEC] will explain his role as OEC’s Political Director and how his work relates to climate change. Guests will also learn about local efforts in Ohio. “I’m excited for the program and to discuss my role at OEC where we build political power for the environment in Ohio,” Dirrig says.

“Ales and Climate Tales” will take place monthly at various breweries around Columbus. All events will be open to the public.

“Providing venues for people to educate themselves on climate change, with the help of the experts, is a great way to make change happen. Having a beer at a local brewery while doing it is a nice added bonus,” says Donny Murray, co-leader of the Citizens’ Climate Lobby Columbus chapter.

Citizens’ Climate Lobby [CCL] is a nonprofit, nonpartisan, grassroots advocacy climate change organization focused on national policies to address climate change. By building upon shared values rather than partisan divides and by empowering its supporters to work in keeping with the concerns of their local communities, CCL works towards the adoption of fair, effective, and sustainable climate change solutions.
