Members of the community gathered at the Tom Ridge Environmental Center on Tuesday, to talk about climate change.
In a round-table discussion, speakers presented information about climate change and the effect its had on our environment over the past few years.
Organizers say our climate change is directly related to our dependence on fossil fuels, and hold these meetings to keep the public informed.
"The whole point of us holding meetings like this is to educate the public about how we're hurting ourselves by continuing to use these fossil fuels," said Ed Perry, Outreach Coordinator for the National Wildlife Federation. "And how we need to get on to clean, renewable, energy."
The public health speaker at Tuesday's meeting said climate change is also creating warmer winters, which is allowing the west nile virus to spread farther north.
