Facing the Future
A Climate Change Vulnerability Assessment for Camden, Maine
The global climate is changing, but what will these changes mean for Camden, Maine? In 2017, Camden became the first town in Maine to sign on to the Global Covenant of Mayors on Energy and Climate. Students in the Global Climate Change class at Watershed School are conducting a vulnerability assessment for the town that outlines future climate scenarios and how these are projected to impact Camden’s coast, forests, infrastructure and other resources if we stay on the current business-as-usual emissions path. Conducting this vulnerability assessment is the second Covenant commitment, which follows last year’s Camden greenhouse emissions inventory. Watershed will present their preliminary results in the Picker Room of the Camden Public Library on June 4, from 4:30 to 6 pm. A reception will follow. The presentation is free and all are welcome.
