Representative. Lauren Carson has scheduled an Earth Day constituent meeting to discuss environmental concerns with constituents.

The meeting is scheduled Wednesday, April 18, at 6:30 pm at the Newport Public Library, 300 Spring St., Newport. All House District 75 (Newport) residents are welcome.

John McDaid, a freelance journalist and award-winning science fiction author from Portsmouth, will present “What Climate Change Means for Newport,” a 20-minute slideshow and talk exploring the challenges of climate change for Rhode Island and the steps we can take to respond. It is a customized version of the presentation developed by Al Gore, whose Climate Reality Project has trained over 12,000 leaders to deliver such presentations in communities around the world. McDaid was trained as a Climate Reality Leader in October.

“Newporters have a strong commitment to the environment. As a coastal community, we are greatly impacted by rising sea levels. Having clean beaches, water, air and land is critical to the tourism and marine trades industries that supports our local economy. Earth day is a perfect time of year to be having this discussion. I’m particularly looking forward to what I expect will be a lively and deeply interesting conversation with my neighbors about sustainability and our future,” said Representative Carson (D-Dist. 75, Newport) in a prepared statement.
