About the Event
Blue Horizon Texas and Climate Cabinet Action will host a webinar on The Big Freeze, the Power Grid, and Clean Energy. Blue Horizon Texas Executive Director Claire Barnett and Climate Cabinet Executive Director Caroline Spears will discuss last year's big freeze and power grid collapse and how candidates in red and rural areas can effectively discuss clean energy and climate in their districts. There will be a Q&A period at the end.
Climate Cabinet Action began as a volunteer-based team in 2018, when a Texas state legislature candidate asked for climate talking points and policy solutions that were relevant to her district. We realized that this need was not unique: many candidates want to run on strong climate platforms but don’t have the time to simultaneously run a full-time campaign and do cutting-edge policy analysis. Thus, Climate Cabinet Action was born. Climate Cabinet Action has supported candidates and pushed climate on the campaign trail in three campaign cycles, including 2018 state legislature races, 2019 presidential primaries, and 2020 state and congressional races. In 2020, we worked with 100 campaigns. On average, these campaigns more than doubled their climate-related social media engagement after our outreach.
