Study: Maine Is A Leader in New England When It Comes To Preparing For Climate Change

Maine is making the fastest strides among New England states in preparing for climate change, according to a new analysis. The report is the work of two fellows at the University of New Hampshire Sustainability Institute who took on a project proposed by the Union of Concerned Scientists. That organization wanted to evaluate the region’s climate progress using its own framework for measuring what it calls the “resilience gap,” or the extent to which communities remain unprepared for climate-change-driven conditions.
