Climate change is the most significant threat to Maine’s wildlife and habitat. Impacts to wildlife and habitat due to climate change under a “business as usual” scenario—in which Mainers continue at the same levels of consumption and emission of fossil fuels—are particularly severe.
That’s why Maine Audubon supports policies that transition Maine to a clean energy economy. Advancements in solar, wind, and other renewable energy technologies mean that achieving 100% renewable energy consumption in Maine by 2050 can happen if we work collaboratively, diligently, and in the best interests of Maine’s people and wildlife alike.
