Living With Thin Ice: Past Perspectives on Climate Change in Belfast, Maine with Emma C. Moesswilde

May 10 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

How did Mainers experience climate change in the past? What might this history tell us about the present and future in light of the current climate crisis? This talk recounts the history of climate change and its impacts on Maine’s people and landscapes. Using the example of Belfast and mid-coast Maine, Moesswilde will highlight  how and why climate history can offer valuable perspectives on climate change today, and what lessons the past might hold for current climate change conversations.

Born and raised in midcoast Maine, Emma C. Moesswilde is a doctoral candidate in the department of history at Georgetown University.
