Energy & Environment:

Coming up Sept. 14 at the Aquarium! Register now for LWVMA’s Climate and Energy Solutions Series forum at the New England Aquarium’s Simons IMAX® Theatre Thursday, Sept. 14 at 7 p.m. This event is free and open to the public, but you must register through the Aquarium’s website. Don’t miss out!

LWVMA and LWV-Boston are excited to team up with the Aquarium and UMass Boston School for the Environment for “Extreme events and climate change: What we know and what we can do.” As timely as the news out of Houston, Dr. Ellen Douglas of UMass Boston will discuss our changing climate, what changes may be in the future for Boston and beyond, and plans for how to adapt to these changes. See her comments in the Boston Globe here and an article about the event here. You can find a flyer here.

Check out our other Environmental Forums: The three other forums in this series will be Oct. 4 in Winchester, Oct. 19 in Lexington, and Nov. 4 in Falmouth.   [Read more…]
