Massachusetts U.S. Sen. Ed Markey is inviting residents and the general public to a Climate Crisis Action Summit at Belmont High School’s auditorium on Thursday, June 28 from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Doors will open at 6:30 p.m.

Markey and three leading climate change experts will discuss what they believe is the greatest crises of our time. Following a discussion of the current state of affairs of climate policy and possible solutions, questions will be taken from the audience.

The expert panelists are:

  • Gina McCarthy, former EPA Administrator and current Director of C-CHANGE (Center for Climate, Health, and the Global Environment) at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health.
  • Dr. John Holdren, former Chief Science and Technology Advisor to President Barack Obama and current Teresa and John Heinz Professor of Environmental Policy at the Harvard Kennedy School of Government.
  • Todd Stern, former U.S. Chief Negotiator for the Paris Climate Accord and current Senior Fellow at the Brookings Institution and Distinguished Fellow at the World Resources Institute.

The summit is asking interested attendees to RSVP in order to gather an estimated headcount. Please note that registration here does not guarantee a seat, as attendees will be seated on a first come, first serve basis. Though we do hope to accommodate each and every individual who attends.

    There were hundreds of people unable to get in. For an event so widely publicized, the location was totally inappropriate. “Tickets” obtained in advance did not reserve seats.

    Great educational night – to hear from the climate change experts. Over 1000 people in attendance- There were people out into the street.

    This clearly proves people are concerned about climate change. Senator Brownsberger did a great job as moderator.

    Senator Markey was held over in Washington because of the rain and was on video conference.
    Thank you Senator Markey – and to the climate control experts- Gina McCarthy, Dr. John Holdren and Todd Stern.

    The disgraceful performance at Belmont High School last night was nothing more than an early reelection rally for Senator Markey. Anybody who attended should have been aware of that.
