CLT and Climate Change

Intro to Climate Change reiterated


The topic of climate change is huge and complex. This was addressed at a January 9 conference (“Climate Primer for Land Trusts”), co-sponsored by the Connecticut Land Conservation Council and the Land Trust Alliance. The big-picture message that came out of that session is that expressed in the first sentence. There is no simple explanation, no simple solution. Climate change is not a massive, cataclysmic event, but a succession of subtle changes, many quite invisible to people. As such, it behooves us (local land trusts) to take up the challenge of communicating the subject to our members and potential members. Obviously, this topic is very controversial, although in Colchester, CT we expect such controversy is minimal.

Note: this introduction originally appeared in January, 2020.
