The Free Market: Climate Change Friend or Foe?

Photo-of-wind-turbinesWednesday, October 19th, 2016 at 7:00 pm

The fall Sustainability Series presented by Together Yes continues with an important discussion, “Free Market: Climate Change Friend or Foe?,” at the Morrill Memorial Library on Wednesday, October 19 at 7:00 p.m. Americans have a love-hate relationship with the free market. We love it because it provides desirable goods at low cost, while we blame it for giving rise to greenhouse gas pollution that drives climate change. Drawing on examples of free market successes and failures, Gary Rucinski, Massachusetts State Coordinator for the Citizens’ Climate Lobby, will explore what free markets can and cannot do to address climate change. He will also discuss what government can do to incentivize investors, entrepreneurs, and inventors to provide the lowest cost clean energy possible.

To sign up for this interactive session, call 781-769-0200, x110 or 222, email norprograms@minlib.net, or stop by the library Reference or Information Desk.
