The next round of major climate treaty negotiations kicks off today in Copenhagen, Denmark, with more than 100 world leaders slated to attend, including President Barack Obama. Louisville’s former Air Pollution Control District Director Art Williams will also be in attendance, as part of the Sierra Club’s national delegation.
Public and private organizations are collaborating to hold Louisville’s first “Food Summit” on April 11. The panel discussions and breakout sessions throughout the day will examine the relationships between those who grow our food, those who sell it, and those who eat it.
Mr. Obama has been quoted as saying he wants to restore America to a leadership position on climate change, which many countries have been hoping for, for a long time.
