Climate Change Adaptation and Sustainability Conference Cited in Huffington Post Blog

The Climate Change Adaptation and Sustainability Conference that was hosted by the University of Maine’s Climate Change Institute in October was mentioned in a Huffington Post blog post by Peter Neill, director of the World Ocean Observatory. In the article, “The externalities of climate change,” Neill wrote about the conference, which he attended along with state agency managers, municipal officials, city planners and others who are interested in the topic. Neill said the purpose of the conference was for participants to ask themselves “What if?” in terms of potential effects of climate change and how to deal with them. “We participants accepted the challenge, and worked together to envision a way forward. Indeed, we began an exercise to plan for the future,” Neill wrote. “We could see how something just might happen, just might work, and how that might accrue to hopeful community benefit.”
