Marfa Dialogues / New York
A Discussion with Maya Lin and Frances Beinecke Connecting Art and Climate
On Monday, November 4th, two of the leading voices on the issue of climate change -- artist and honorary NRDC Trustee Maya Lin and NRDC President Frances Beinecke -- discussed the critical role artists, advocates and scientists play in addressing climate change, the role of art in mobilizing and educating the public, and the great potential for environmentally focused artwork to affect climate change policy. The interactive discussion, part of the Marfa Dialogues / New York series, used Maya Lin's most recent project, What is Missing?, as an example of collaborations to engage the public about climate change. Anne Pasternak, President and Artistic Director of Creative Time, moderated the discussion.

Demand limits to carbon pollution
The EPA's carbon pollution limit for new power plants is a critical part of President Obama's climate plan. Support Obama's climate plan and tell the EPA to protect our planet and the health of our families.
Urge the EPA to support a limit on carbon pollution!
