Lincoln County Regional Planning Commission is continuing a monthly newsletter discussing climate change in Maine. “LCRPC Interprets!” was released monthly during 2021 following each chapter of the “Maine Won’t Wait: A Four-Year Plan for Climate Action” report. New for 2022, the newsletter will feature a different climate change topic each month and the effect on human life and the environment. Topics range from building and construction, to ocean and fresh water, and safety and preparedness. Readers will enjoy segments such as ‘Climate Change and YOU,’ which showcases practices and behaviors people can undertake to address, mitigate and adapt to climate change; native landscaping, healthy travel, and energy reduction, for example.
Returning segments include Spotlight, which profiles exciting organizations in Maine working on climate issues. “We are glad to share the important work going on across the state and distill it in a way that is relevant to readers and Lincoln County,” said Emily Rabbe and Sandy Gilbreath, the LCRPC staff creating the newsletter with support from a Department of Agriculture, Conservation, and Forestry planning grant.
