In the Community: Global Warming

Film and Panel Discussion on Global Warming:  Project Drawdown
Monday, December 11, 7-8:30pm, Bedford Public Library

Project Drawdown, a comprehensive plan to reverse global warming. “It will give you the best kind of hope, the kind that balances realism with radical vision.” Tom Athanasiou, The Nation

There is no silver bullet for climate change because slowing planetary warming will require a variety of strategies.  Drawdown, a new book edited by the green entrepreneur, Paul Hawken, analyzes 100 solutions, ranks them by the amount of greenhouse gases they could cut, and reaches some surprising conclusions.

The plan was devised by a diverse group of international researchers who examined and modeled substantive, existing solutions to address climate change. What was uncovered was a path forward using the means we already have on hand.

Join us for a brief film about the Drawdown plan.  It will be followed by a panel discussion with: Keith Bergman, Littleton’s Town Administrator and President of MAPC (Metropolitan Area Planning Council); Dan Bostwick, Member, Bedford Net Zero Study Group: and Kate Crosby, Energy Manager, Acton-Boxborough Regional Schools.
