On February 26, 2020 (Wednesday, 7:00-9:00pm) – we hosted a Climate Change Forum at the Scandinavian Cultural Center. Almost 90 people attended this event. We discussed the current state of climate change science and implications for society, the current status and importance of the regional transportation and climate initiative, and the plan to help transition gas utilities to delivery of clean, safe, renewable energy and the importance of the FUTURE Act. Our panelists included Craig Altemose, Co-Founder and Executive Director of Better Future Project; Jordan Stutt, Carbon Programs Director of the Acadia Center; Audrey Schulman, Co-founder and Executive Director of HEET (Home Energy Efficiency Team), and Zeyneb Magavi, Director of HEET. State Senator Cynthia Creem, a sponsor of the The FUTURE Act, also attended and provided remarks on the FUTURE Act and current state legislative efforts to address climate change.
