Climate solutions talk with community, legislators

Apr 14, 2019

On Thursday, May 2, at 6 p.m. at the Belfast Free Library, the Belfast area chapter of Citizens’ Climate Lobby will host Hank Reisner, a trained member of the Climate Reality Leadership Corps led by former Vice President Al Gore, leading a slide show and discussion about "solutions to our ecological crisis."

As a father and grandfather, and after 35 years as a building contractor, Reisner has turned his energy to addressing the climate crisis. A member of the Climate Change Committee for Belfast, he is now helping to initiate development of a Waldo County organization, A Climate to Thrive Waldo, whose mission is energy independence by 2030.

Also planning to speak are Rep. S. Paige Zeigler of Montville, D-Dist. 96, member of the Environment & Natural Resources Committee, whose bill, LD 289 to ban styrofoam food containers in Maine, recently received a favorable vote in the House of Representatives, and Rep. Chloe Maxmin of Nobleboro, D-Dist. 88, who recently introduced a bill, LD 1282, for a Green New Deal for Maine.

Light refreshments will be served. Free and open to all.
