Climate and Energy Solutions Series Moves to Cape Cod November 4


In the Series forum at the Boston Aquarium in September, Dr. Ellen Douglas’s presentation was both engaging and enlightening. Her message will be of particular interest to Cape Cod and south coast residents, where her frank discussion of sea level rise and climate change will resonate. Two Cape-based speakers will be on hand to provide the local perspective.

This event is the last of five forums of LWVMA’s Climate and Energy Solutions Series. It is free and open to the public.
