The Week Ahead: July 15-21
Happy Monday, glad you’re starting your week off with us! Here’s a preview of the week ahead:
- House: on Tuesday the Natural Resources Committee will hold a hearing on the impacts of oil and gas development on climate and public health, on Wednesday the Committee on Science, Space, and Tech will hold a hearing on scientific integrity at federal agencies
- Senate: on Wednesday that Environment and Public Works Committee will hold a hearing on the opportunities and challenges of electric batteries
- Pop Culture: The live-action version of The Lion King opens in theaters on Thursday but back in 1995 after the original film came out Disney screened a short film at Epcot called The Circle of Life, an Environmental Fable to teach kids about protecting the environment. We think it’s time for a new version of this short film as well!
- Out of This World: Saturday marks the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing.
ICYMI: footage of a massive manta ray named Freckles approaching divers to free it of the fishing hooks lodged in its body became viral over the weekend. The divers were able to remove the hooks and Freckles is said to be doing well.
