Kansas City Debates Climate Change Consequences Tonight

In this debate we notice a lot of love for the local power company . . . It's nice to have sponsors.

Here's the premise of the conversation . . .

Evergy, which powers Kansas City homes and industry, has filed documentation with the CDP  expressing its intent to address carbon – carbon tax or not.

“In April 2021 … Evergy announced a goal to achieve net-zero carbon emissions by 2045, which includes  an interim goal of a 70% reduction of CO2 emissions from 2005 levels by 2030,’ the filing stated.  

All this and more is up for discussion Tuesday evening at Donnelly College and online, courtesy of  American Public Square.
