Climate & The Pandemic: Effects of the Pandemic on Climate Change & Lessons Learned about Global Crises
Our panel examines what was learned about climate change during pandemic, including: how much reduced human activity affected the rate of climate change, and what the response to the global pandemic says about the potential for climate action. We’ll also hear about the status of Maine’s climate action plan, and what impact the pandemic has had on the state’s progress.
