Mass. not behind NH in coastal sea change work

(Continued)

It takes sustained commitment and a shared vision to tackle the complex issues that are associated with climate change. I encourage everyone engaged in the Newburyport area to seek out the existing expertise and resources that are available in Massachusetts and to explore multiple models for how to expand and use those resources to make decisions that protect coastal communities and ecosystems. Inevitably, this will begin with a group of passionate people who are dedicated to solutions. I know there are passionate citizens, municipal leaders, business people, and state agency people in Massachusetts who are already doing this hard work and have been for a very long time.

The New Hampshire Coastal Adaptation Workgroup is unique primarily because of the intangible chemistry between the partners around the table. Whatever your interest in climate change and coastal impacts, find that chemistry from a diverse set of people and harness it’s power.
