Announcing the Comprehensive Climate Hearing 

New this year, the WEALTH Coalition will be sponsoring a Comprehensive Climate Hearing. The hearing will bring together a committee made up of members representing both chambers and parties, as well as members of the community with expertise or commitment to climate action to discuss the science of climate change, the costs to our state and agriculture economy, our health and environment, along with solutions and strategies for resilience. The chair of the hearing will be Representative Don Hineman of Dighton and will include Representatives Horn, Xi, Cox and Kuether, and Sen. Hardy along with a host of others.


Rabbi Moti Rieber, Executive Director of Kansas Interfaith Action and one of the organizers of the hearing, said, "This hearing will not be a rally, or a show; it will be a serious effort to address a problem that Kansas has been ignoring for too long. The information will be solid and the proposals will be both achievable and effective. We hope that it will kickstart a long-overdue conversation about climate disruption in Kansas.”
