What is the Maine Climate Plan, and What Does It Mean to You and Your Town?
The Rockland Public Library will be hosting Dr. Lenny Reich for a presentation and discussion about the new Maine Climate Plan. The Maine Climate Council submitted their final plans to Governor Mills in December, 2020. The Maine Climate Plan covers a lot of ground, and this program seeks to inform Mainers about what is on the horizon.
Dr. Lenny Reich taught at Colby College from 1986 – 2014. With undergraduate degrees in Mechanical Engineering and Mathematics from Bucknell, and a Ph.D. in the History of Science & Technology from Johns Hopkins, he has also held major fellowships at the Smithsonian Institution, Harvard Business School, and the Dibner Institute for the History of Science and Technology at MIT. His research interests include the history of the electrical industry, especially the combination of science, technology, and the environmental impacts of technological change. Recently, he has been working on issues dealing with diet, agriculture, and environmental consequences, including its effects on climate.
Join us on Thursday, May 6th from 6:30PM - 7:30PM for the online event. This program is intended for a general audience, and Dr. Reich will discuss what the Maine Climate Plan means for Rockland and other towns and cities in Maine. There will be a Q&A after the presentation. The program is free, and registration is required.
