Maine Communities for Climate Solutions!
Are you looking to make a difference in the climate crisis? Have you sensed that reducing your personal carbon footprint isn’t going to make the kind of difference you’d like to make? You have come to the right place!
If we act together, big things can happen! Policy solutions that involve wide-scale change in societal energy economics are necessary to reduce carbon emissions enough, and in time. We need to enact effective, swift, and equitable policies to move us away from our destructive energy system.
