Lower Cape Indivisible - Fifth Climate Change Talk

February 11th in Brewster

Lower Cape Indivisible (LCI) will present the fifth talk in its six-part lecture series—Climate Change Threats to Cape Cod: What Can We Do?—at the Chatham Community Center, Third Floor, 702 Main Street, Chatham, on Sunday, February 11, 3:00—4:30 p.m. Free and open to the public, the tri-part event will present information on measuring individuals’ carbon footprints, how faith communities are taking steps to address climate change, and what individuals can do to make their properties more energy efficient.

Featured speakers are Steve Gates, Technical Director, Cape Cod Climate Change Collaborative; Susan Starkey, Chair, Green Sanctuary Committee, Unitarian Church of Barnstable; and Kevin Galligan, Energy Consultant.

Gates’ topic, Saving Money and the Environment, will provide a demo of the Cape Cod Climate Change Collaborative’s carbon footprint calculator, designed to help individuals measure their carbon impacts so that they can make choices which help preserve Cape Cod. Starkey’s presentation, Faith Communities Making a Difference, will describe the Unitarian Church of Barnstable’s playbook to reduce its carbon footprint, one step at a time. Galligan’s topic, Energy Efficiency: Simple as One Call, will discuss the ease with which property owners and businesses can get assistance to identify, plan and implement their own energy efficiency programs.

This is the fifth presentation in a six-part series held throughout the fall and winter, featuring experts from leading environmental organizations including the Association to Preserve Cape Cod, Center for Coastal Studies, Pleasant Bay Alliance, Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary, Woods Hole Sea Grant, and Cape Cod Commission.
