#AskEPA - Earth Month Twitter Chats

During Earth Month, April 2013, you can join EPA for environmental Twitter chats. We'll have a different environmental topic each time, with EPA experts to discuss the topic and respond to questions. You can learn more about the issues, participate in the discussion, and find out what you can do.

Schedule and topics:

  • Monday, April 8th at 2:00pm EDT: Climate Change and Water
    Experts from our Office of Water will join us to talk about how climate change is affecting oceans, watersheds, and their aquatic ecosystems in the U.S. We will also be discussing how EPA is adapting programs that protect public health and water resources.

  • Monday, April 15th at 2:00 pm EDT: Beyond Waste
    Chat with experts from the Office of Solid Waste and Emergency Response about how we can take simple actions such as recycling used electronics or reducing wasted food to combat climate change.Approximately 42 percent of U.S. greenhouse gas emissions are associated with the energy used to produce, process, transport and dispose of the food we eat and the goods we use.

  • Monday, April 22nd at 2:00pm EDT: Climate Change: What You Can Do
    Every day our actions affect the planet. Experts from our Office of Air and Radiation will be joining us on Earth Day to talk about what we can all do at home, in the office, and on the road to save energy, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and help protect the planet. Let’s work together to protect our communities from the effects of climate change now and in the future.

To participate, at the starting time, sign into your Twitter account and submit a question on the topic using hashtag #AskEPA. We'll respond to as many Tweets and questions on the topic as possible.

If you aren't a Twitter user, you can still follow the chat online by going to twitter.com/epalive when the chat begins.
