How is Wellesley addressing climate change and what does it mean for you?
The Rotary Club of Wellesley will host Town of Wellesley’s Climate Action Director, Dr. Marybeth Martello, who will speak about development of a town-wide Climate Action Plan on Tuesday, September 7, 7pm, via Zoom.
The Wellesley Climate Action Plan, is a road map for reaching Wellesley’s newly revised climate goals. The goals have been set to mitigate the effects of higher temperatures, drought, extreme weather events, and flooding. Addressing greenhouse gas emissions and strengthening resilience to climate change impacts can potentially reduce future costs and yield additional economic, health, ecosystem, and infrastructure benefits.
