Talk: Belmont’s Renewable Energy Policy – An Analysis
Wednesday, April 29th at 7 PM
Belmont Public Library
Mark Robbins examines Belmont’s current policies on renewable energy and compares how Belmont lags far behind the rest of Massachusetts in its support of renewable energy. He’ll review the various ways our policies could be changed to really make a difference in terms of climate change action. Along the way, attendees will find out the answer to the following riddles: Why is energy from a renewable resource not necessarily renewable energy? What is actually the largest cross-subsidy that arises from our current energy policy? And finally, mysteriously, why does 29=0 sometimes?
