Bern Kosicki - Climate Change Action in Chelmsford - What can you do?
This was CCAT’s first live presentation at the Adams Library since COVID-19. Bern described the two climate action groups in Chelmsford, Chelmsford Climate Action Team and the Clean Energy and Sustainability Committee (CEAS). He gave a brief history of CCAT, highlighting the Climate Resolution presented at Town Meeting, which led to the formation of CEAS. Then he reported on what CEAS is working on, highlighting the Green House Gas Inventory and the Climate Action Plan. He reviewed the actions that have been taken so far and the plans for further action, which is where we all come in.

Climate Resolution Passed at Spring Town Meeting 2021
In 2021, the Chelmsford Climate Action Team submitted a warrant article to be taken up at the June town meeting. The article did two things. First, it affirmed that Chelmsford recognizes the human-caused nature of the climate change crisis. Second, it called on the Select Board to create a new town committee responsible for advising the Select Board on getting Chelmsford to net-zero carbon emissions by 2050. Article 28 was passed thanks to a great deal of legwork done by the CCAT team including publicity, gaining sponsors (the Sierra Club), and passionate speeches at the town meeting itself. In the picture above, Bern Kosicki (CCAT member) is standing at the podium in the white and green paid shirt, presenting the article, while CCAT member and Town Meeting rep Tom Armino (blue shirt) stands at the microphone speaking in support of the article.
