On August 31, Senator Rob Hogg completed a 17-day, 4000-mile, 71-gallon trip to New Hampshire and other New England states to take his son back to college and to promote his book, America's Climate Century, and the climate action we so urgently need. He spoke to more than a dozen audiences with approximately 400 people, met many more including Governor Maggie Hassan in New Hampshire (when she signed two bills to help prepare her state for sea level rise and future storm surges), conducted multiple media interviews, and sold or distributed approximately 500 books.
The basic message of the trip is that we need more Americans more informed, more involved, doing more, and speaking up more for climate action - both slashing our greenhouse gas emissions by leaving fossil fuels in the ground and safeguarding our people and our property against future climate disasters.
The best media coverage of the trip was an editorial by the Concord Monitor. Here is the web address for the editorial:
