Midcoast Senior College has planned another intellectually intriguing series of lectures for June 2015. This year’s theme:
GLOBAL CLIMATE CHANGE AND MAINE’S NATURAL RESOURCES, PRESENT AND FUTURE: GLOOM AND DOOM OR ECONOMIC BOOM?
The history of Maine is closely tied to its natural resources; forests, farms and oceans. For generations, Mainers have relied on them to provide their livelihood. However, over the past several centuries, Maine’s economy, largely based on these resources, has experienced a slow but inexorable decline. A heartening development, however, has been the renaissance in farming, stimulated by the warming climate and the locavore movement. This year’s Summer Wisdom lecture series will explore the present and future status of Maine’s natural resources in the light of global climate change. Each lecture and discussion lasts about 90 minutes.
Held at the Morrell Meeting Room, Curtis Memorial Library,.
