BELLOWS FALLS, Vt. – Join the conversation on climate change and local/state solutions including the new Essex Plan, carbon pricing proposal, with representatives from the Rockingham Energy Committee and the Vermont Natural Resources Council on Wednesday, Feb. 21 at 6:30 p.m. in the Rockingham Library’s top floor meeting room.
It’s 2018, the legislative session just resumed, and there is a critical opportunity to ensure Vermont steps up on climate change, turning this challenge into economic opportunity for all and bending the curve on our state’s rising carbon emissions. The Rockingham Energy Committee, Vermont Natural Resources Council, and the Rockingham Free Public Library are partnering to facilitate a conversation on how we can make progress at the local and state level over the next few months. Hear about what’s happening – or not – in the Legislature and at the state level on climate and clean energy, as well as get an overview of one potentially creative approach to tackling this challenge called the “Essex Plan,” which aims to accelerate the transition to a clean, largely local, renewably powered future.
This program is free and open to the public. For more information, call 802-463-4270, visit www.rockinghamlibrary.org, email email@example.com, or stop by the library at 65 Westminster St., Bellows Falls.
