Kennebunk to host climate-change expert
High tide storm damage. Frequent 25-year and 50-year rainstorms. Washed out roads. Beetle infestations. Damaged bridges and culverts. These are just a few of the things people in Maine may experience as a result of climate change.
To learn more about how a changing climate may affect people in Maine, the Kennebunk Conservation and Open Space Planning Commission is hosting a public presentation by Ray Sirois, Information Technology Director at Wright-Pierce, a Maine environmental engineering firm.
A talk and slide show will be held at the Kennebunk Town Hall auditorium on
Thurs., Jan. 20th 2011, 7:00 PM.
Sirois will offer detailed information about weather and climate change in Maine, both best- and worst-case. In past talks, Sirois stirred thought provoking dialogue among officials and the public involved with emergency preparedness, public safety, and environmental issues.
