what the plan means for Rockland and other towns and cities

What is this Maine Climate Action Plan? A virtual talk with Lenny Reich

The Rockland Public Library presents Dr. Lenny Reich, Thursday, May 6, at 6:30 p.m., over Zoom. This event is free and open to all.

What is this Maine Climate Action Plan you’ve been hearing about? The Maine Climate Council submitted their final plans to Governor Mills in December 2020. The Maine Climate Plan covers a lot of ground, and this program, intended for a general audience, seeks to inform Mainers about what is on the horizon.

Dr. Reich will discuss what the Maine Climate Plan means for Rockland and other towns and cities in Maine. A Q&A will follow the presentation.

Dr. Lenny Reich taught at Colby College from 1986 - 2014. With undergraduate degrees in Mechanical Engineering and Mathematics from Bucknell, and a Ph.D. in the History of Science & Technology from Johns Hopkins, he has also held major fellowships at the Smithsonian Institution, Harvard Business School, and the Dibner Institute for the History of Science and Technology at MIT. His research interests include the history of the electrical industry, especially the combination of science, technology, and the environmental impacts of technological change. Recently, he has been working on issues dealing with diet, agriculture, and environmental consequences, including its effects on climate.
