Solar Gone Wrong: Solar v. Forests– A False Choice
Wed October 20 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm EDT
In Southeast Massachusetts on the traditional territory of the Wampanoag Nation, globally rare Atlantic Coastal Pine Barrens forests are being clear-cut and strip-mined to site ground-mounted industrial solar installations. Biodiversity, wetlands and waterways are being harmed. Mass Peace Action supports massive solar expansion for climate but not through the destruction of Indigenous cultural sites, globally rare ecosystems and risks to our drinking water aquifer, rivers and waterways. This webinar includes perspectives of Indigenous stewards of the land, environmentalists, and residents working for responsible solar siting and to protect our land and water. This is an important forum for all of Massachusetts.
