From flood plains to climate grief

In this episode we were joined by the Town of Franklin Conservation Agent and as you’ll hear, we had a great discussion. We go from flood plain, to the water cycle, to dealing with climate grief..In this episode we covered the following topics: 

  • Breeka Li Goodlander provides her "road to Franklin Conservation Agent"
  • Open Space & Recreation update process underway
  • Franklin is basically a flood plain source for the Charles River
  • Role of wetlands, fragility of cycle, point source, non-point source
  • Climate grief, Skype a scientist
  • The remedy for grief is to take action, to make a difference

This discussion continues our journey understanding the MA roadmap toward net zero and while it helps me “make sense of climate”, we hope it helps with your understanding as well. 

The reading list:

Because we recognize the necessity of personal accountability for our actions, because we accept responsibility for a building a durable future and because we believe it is our patriotic duty as citizens to speak out, we must insist the United States transform it’s energy sector, over the next decade, under a just and equitable plan, that uses regulations, investments and a price on carbon that protects environmental justice communities.

Thanks for listening.
