What is the Maine Climate Council?
The Maine Climate Council is an assembly of scientists, industry leaders, bipartisan local and state officials, and engaged citizens working to address the effects of climate change on our state. The council was created by Gov. Janet Mills and supported with bipartisan support of the Legislature. The council is tasked with creating concrete recommendations so Maine can achieve its ambitious goals to reduce emissions and become more resilient to a changing climate.
The Council is currently reviewing a series of draft climate change strategies developed by expert working groups of the Council and wants public feedback to help inform the Council’s deliberations.
There are several ways to offer feedback and engage with Council. The first step is to visit here: https://climatecouncil.maine.gov/
On the site, you are invited to:
Review the draft strategies and submit feedback through brief survey
