Full House for BRD Climate Change Forum

The banquet room at the Bridgeview Diner was filled to capacity tonight for the Climate Change Forum hosted by Bay Ridge Democrats.

After hearing from presenters Eric Cesnik of Climate Reality, Lyna Hinkel of 350.org, and Paul Reale of Organizing for Action, the Forum was paused to accommodate the campaign schedules of Democratic congressional candidate Domenic Recchia, running to unseat Conservative Republican Michael Grimm in the 11th CD, and community activist Marybeth Melendez, challenging Conservative Republican State Assembly Member Nicole Malliotakis in the 64th District.

After the candidates' remarks -- including Recchia's embrace of Climate Reality's positions -- the Forum resumed with a lively, enlightening -- and at times adversarial -- back-and-forth on climate change between the presenters, club members and guests.
