                                               CARBON FOOTPRINT
                                                Susan Mooney, Ph.D.
 
Sue will begin with a brief consideration of climate justice, as marginalized peoples are already suffering from the impacts of climate disruption.  We’ll swiftly move to the good news – the is SO much each of us can do to make a real difference!  Ethics, economics and ecology can and do align, allowing each of us to decrease our carbon footprints.  She will share the particulars of her journey, including an electric car, geothermal heating, solar panels, diet changes and energy/materials conservation.  Participants will leave the workshop with questions for reflection as well as practical steps and strategies they can implement in their own lives/homes.
 
Sue is a Professor of Environmental Sciences & Studies at Stonehill College. She brings grounded hope to improve our environmental future.  With dual expertise in science and philosophy, She’s work addresses both the technical details and the big picture considerations. 

Conversations at the Meetinghouse is a monthly program held on the first Friday of each month (October to June) at 7 p.m. where members of the community share their expertise and experience about important issues of the day.
