Belfast — Peter Dugas, co-chairman of the Portland chapter of Citizens’ Climate Lobby, will lead a climate workshop, "Simulating Global Solutions," via Zoom on Tuesday, Jan. 19, at 7 p.m.

Following the demonstration, Dugas will invite participants to compare and evaluate the effectiveness of multiple strategies that limit future global warming.
