UNITY — Dr. Michael Womersley, professor of Human Ecology/ School of Environmental Citizenship at Unity College, will speak at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 11 at 93 Main Coffee Shop, 93 Main St. Womersley’s presentation is part of the Sebasticook Regional Land Trust’s monthly speaker series, “Restoring Connections to Place,” featuring a wide variety of conservation topics.

Womersley will address: What will happen to Maine’s land and ocean resources as climate changes in the 21st century? What likely climate scenarios are there for Maine? What will most likely happen to our weather and to sea level? How should we best respond? What mitigation and adaptation strategies are most likely to work? In fisheries? In forestry and agriculture? Which ones are likely to lead to yet more problems down the road?

Womersley has a PhD in Environmental Policy Analysis from the University of Maryland Policy School, with a focus on US cultural acceptance of climate policy. His current research is in political economy and geopolitics of climate change.

The programs are held on the second Wednesday of every month at the Unity café. These monthly events are open to the public and a $5 donation is suggested. For more information, email [email protected] or call 948-3766.
