From a News Release
Sierra Club Rio Grande Chapter Conservation Chair Ken Hughes of Santa Fe is one of 29 U.S. Sierra Club members who will be joining President Obama and other world leaders at the international Climate Conference in Copenhagen starting Dec. 7.
Ken and the Sierra Club team will be urging the U.S. negotiations team to achieve a strong U.S. plan to address climate change. They will also be pushing for funding of clean energy projects so that developing countries can leapfrog the polluting phase of development and go straight to a low carbon future. Ken will also learn about successful programs in other countries that could be applied here.
Ken, who will attend the conference from December 7-13, will give presentations about his experience to each of the Rio Grande chapter’s groups after his return, including Albuquerque on January 18 and Santa Fe on January 19.
