Belfast Climate Crisis Committee Monthly Public Meeting
March 29 @ 6:00 pmFree
After Summit: How do we get to carbon neutrality?
In early February 2021 Summit Gas announced a $90 million extension of a gas pipeline along Maine’s mid-coast, from Belfast to Thomaston.
Summit predicted that this would greatly reduce greenhouse gas [GHG] emissions. On March 2, Summit withdrew this plan due to community opposition.
The heating of our world (the climate crisis) is largely caused by the burning offossil fuels. The crisis requires us to respond wisely in deciding what energy
sources we use in our communities. How will we reduce our use of GHG – producing fuels while caring for our citizens? What important local and regional
decisions must we make to meet the goals of our Maine Climate Action Plan?
To join us for a zoom presentation from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. on Monday, March
29, 2021 go to the Library website [belfastlibrary.org] and register under Virtual Events.
We hope to hear from experts and advocates with diverse viewpoints, and to allow for substantial public input and feedback. Belfast and other midcoast
Maine communities will be able to use this information to make informed choices for our future.
