Stop Climate Change: Take actions that matter the most

SEE THE RECORDING OF THE FORUM ON THE BELMONT MEDIA CENTER WEBSITE


Citizens are bombarded with advice on actions they should take to address the catastrophic impacts of global warming resulting in climate change.  Install this. Buy that. Do or don’t do something else. 


Attend this Belmont Energy Committee forum to learn what are the most important steps YOU and the Town can take to really make a difference in preventing global warming and climate change. Hear from experts about how the world of 2035 can and will differ from the world we know today.
