Confused by competing "facts" in the angry partisan feud over global warming? The Village Square is bringing the global climate change debate home to Tallahassee in its "Dinner at the Square" series on Tuesday, January 19th with "Global Warming, Cap & Trade, Dollars & Sense." The program features a panel of experts from different sides of the contentious issue in a search for common sense solutions. It is the second dinner in this year's Village Square season "The Year of Living Dangerously: Tackling America's Big Ugly Partisan controversies."
The Village Square is a non-profit started by a group of local leaders around enduring across-the-aisle friendships. Its mission is to improve the quality and civility of the political debate.
Panelists include James Madison Institute Adjunct Scholar Paul Bachman of Boston's Beacon Hill Institute, who has recently completed an analysis of the economic effects of the proposed cap and trade legislation on Florida; Bryant Miller Olive's Kathy Baughman McLeod who led the Green Jobs for Florida delegation to the UN Conference on Climate Change in Copenhagen; Colleen Castille of Go Green Strategies, formerly serving as Secretary of Department of Environmental Protection under Governor Jeb Bush; Susan Glickman, a consultant for Natural Resources Defense Council and Southern Alliance for Clean Energy; and Barry Moline, Executive Director of Florida Municipal Electric Association.
This program is part of the "Dinner at the Square" season The Year of Living Dangerously: Tackling America's Big Ugly Partisan Controversies. Find information about the season generally and the other dinner programs HERE.
