Join the Conversation on Climate Change

It’s Earth Month, and at EPA we want you to join the conversation on climate change. We’ll be hosting Twitter chats every Monday between now and Earth Day.

Here is the schedule:

April 8th 2:00pm EDT - Water

Experts from our Office of Water will join us to talk about how climate change is affecting oceans, watersheds, and their aquatic ecosystems in the U.S. We will also be discussing how EPA is adapting programs that protect public health and water resources.

April 15th 2:00pm EDT - Beyond Waste

Chat with experts from the Office Solid Waste and Emergency Response about how we can take simple actions such as recycling used electronics and reducing wasted food to combat climate change. Approximately 42 percent of U.S. greenhouse gas emissions are associated with the energy used to produce, process, transport and dispose of the food we eat and the goods we use.

Earth Day, April 22nd 2:00pm EDT - Climate Change: What You Can Do

Every day our actions affect the planet. Experts from our Office of Air and Radiation will be joining us on Earth Day to talk about what we can all do at home, in the office, and on the road to save energy, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and help protect the planet. Let’s work together to protect our communities from the effects of climate change now and in the future.

Join our Earth Month Twitter chats by following @EPAlive and the #AskEPA hashtag on Twitter. Ask us a question, share your ideas, and join the conversation on climate change.
