Members of Governor's Commission on Global Warming to meet people of Northwest Arkansas

If you care about global warming in Arkansas, come meet the people who are making a difference.
Members of the Governor’s Commission on Global Warming are coming to Northwest Arkansas to meet the press and the public at 3 p.m. May 18 at St. Thomas Episcopal Church in Springdale (the church on I-540 with windmills).
You are invited to meet the commissioners, learn about the work they’re doing, and the role they see for themselves in helping Arkansas through the hard times ahead.
The Global Warming Commission is made up of people from science, industry, government and nonprofit groups. They have labored together for months to identify primary issues our state needs to address to fight global warming, and they’re ready to talk to you about it. They also need to know the problems, concerns, and solutions you see. They want to hear from you.
A news conference begins at 3 p.m., with the reception immediately following. Please join us.
