Roadmap to 100 Percent Renewable Energy
Presented by Ben Martin and Melissa Everett
Mansfield Public Library
Thursday, September 6 @ 6:30 PM

100% renewable energy is a key strategy to combat climate change, but it is only one part of a panorama of climate solutions.  Ben Martin of 350CT will share strategies and policies for moving CT to 100% renewable energy, and how everyone can play a part.  Melissa Everett of Clean Water Fund will report on Project Drawdown, a rigorous and inspiring study of the top 100 climate solutions.  Some will surprise you!

350 CT is the Connecticut chapter of 350.org.  In 2008, a group of professors and concerned scientists founded the now-international, mass-action, grassroots campaign to curb climate change by demanding an immediate timetable to phase out the burning of fossil fuels.

Project Drawdown is the most comprehensive plan ever proposed to reverse global warming. A qualified and diverse group of researchers from around the world were brought together to identify, research, and model the 100 most substantive, existing solutions to address climate change. What was uncovered is a path forward that can roll back global greenhouse gas emissions within thirty years. The research revealed that humanity has the means and techniques at hand. Nothing new needs to be invented, yet many more solutions are coming due to purposeful human ingenuity. The solutions we modeled are in place and in action. Humanity’s task is to accelerate the knowledge and growth of what is possible as soon as possible.

Come join us and become informed.  This program is free for all and open to the public.
