Maine Climate Council
We are currently working to make the state of Maine more sustainable and resilient by supporting the Maine Climate Council. The Council was formed in 2019 to take on the challenge of reducing Maine’s carbon emissions, building resilience, and supporting economic growth. Kathy Mills served on the Marine and Coastal Working Group. Andrew Pershing serves on the Scientific and Technical Working group and is one of two scientists appointed to the Council by the Governor.
We contribute to the development of appropriate, sustainable policies that address climate change challenges by collecting, synthesizing, and providing accurate, current scientific data and technical advice to policymakers at multiple scales.

Kathy Mills represented ocean issues for the Northeast Chapter, and Andrew Pershing led the Oceans and Marine Resources Chapter.
