I am a retired biology teacher and am well aware of the need to educate the populace of Pa. about the serious impact climate change is having on our planet. I have talked with and heard professionals from Penn Future present excellent factual programs about the changes that have already taken place among the flora and fauna of Pa. and the news is not good. As stewards of this earth we all have a stake in reducing carbon emissions to prevent further damage to our air, water and wildlife and Penn Future is one organization that is both educating and speaking out to our legislators.
It's not the fact that our climate is changing, it's how fast it's changing - it's past time for people to wake up to that fact!
I love to visit the Laurel Highlands, especially in the winter. The air is so clean over the snow.
I realize that this environment is being threatened by our bad habits.
We desperately need an organization like PennFuture to help us live well.
My PennFuture coworkers make up the overall smartest group with which I've ever worked. I'm awed every day and have stayed with PennFuture longer than I've worked with any other organization. I honestly believe we're doing good work and we all really care about the work we do.
I have been working with PennFuture on Marcellus Shale drilling issues in Pa and in partnership with the E.L.Rose Conservancy of Susquehanna County. Their staff is extremely knowledgable and helpful, and training workshops I have attended are very informative. I really appreciate how hard they are working to try to strengthen legislation and protect our environment, health and quality of life from the hazards of this gas drilling frenzy. i support their work 100%.
Penn Future for us has created a state wide awareness of environmental issues and progresses and brought those issues home on a local level to North Central Pennsylvania, often a forgotten part of the state.
PennFuture has been a great help to The Western Clinton Sportsmen's Association, Renovo, PA as WCSA pushes for legislation to save Pennsylvania's state forest system from being turned into a Cash Cow by selling leases to companies drilling in the Marcellus Shale Formation.PennFuture's Responsible Drilling Campaign is right on target.
Appreciate the ease of PennsFuture's online emailing to the appropriate represetnatives of state and federal government; data entry; appreciate the clear and pertinent website.
I appreciate the professional way that PennFuture goes about communicating with elected representatives. I also appreciate the way they make good use of volunteers' time by calling us in to participate in specific meetings and hearings where they think we can make a difference.
I have been a member of "PennFuture" for over 10 years. They put on quality educational conferences all over the State of Pennsylvania. Their staff is excellent, professional, low key and highly effective. Their legal staff is very accessible, cooperative and always busy protectin the environment and the wellbeing of the Citizens of our state. To my knowledge, their funding and administrative reputation is "squeaky clean". I am proud to be a member of Penn Future and would recommend membership to any socially and environmentally responsible citizen of Pennsylvania
