Thinking About Climate Change: History and Policy

Maine Maritime Museum 243 Washington St, Bath

The Arctic and Gulf of Maine are widely recognized as "canaries in the coal mine" for signaling the impact of global warming. Dealing with climate change will take a mix of actions. How can individuals make a difference for a global problem? John Zittel has been working to understand the variety of measures that are possible to address the climate challenge. This unique workshop will foster discussion on how to recognize the problem, identify national and global action, and empower participants to learn how to take local action such as reducing emissions, capturing carbon dioxide, and navigating market and policy options at our disposal. Participants will be empowered to learn and brainstorm ways to initiate local long and short-term solutions. This is a free workshop
