Association to Preserve Cape Cod’s Executive Director Andrew Gottlieb had this to say in his “What I’m thinking” newsletter…
If you start at the local level, and let’s face it that most of the action on mitigation and adaptation are going to happen as local government projects, your vote really counts. I was elected a selectman by 6 votes. In local scale elections, single votes matter and candidates know it. So, don’t waste your power. Put people in office at the local level who take the science seriously and understand the urgency.
… Don’t think for a minute that who you elect locally doesn’t matter. Even if your local select person doesn’t move up the political food chain, they will be deciding what your town does or doesn’t accomplish on climate and water quality. Barnstable voters, you have an election soon, so it is not too late to flex your environmental muscles.

I spent Monday and Tuesday at the Cape Cod Commission’s 2019 One Cape Summit. Workshops addressed climate change through adaptation and mitigation. Also fantastic discussions about the issues concerning year-round housing on the Cape.
This year’s One Cape Summit focused on Environment and Economy. Day #1 featured speakers on environmental concerns. Eric Fisher, CBS Boston’s WBZ-TV’s chief meteorologist recounted not only the conditions leading up to the previous week’s tornadoes, but also stated that July 2019 was the hottest July on record for Boston. In fact, the Washington Post reports that June was the 414th consecutive month with above-average global temperatures.
The One Cape Summit Day #2 agenda included presentations on town planning tools. These tools integrate design, economics and public input to develop strategies for improving quality of life while increasing living space density. Town of Barnstable planners are looking to the future to ensure that affordable workforce housing opportunities are created.
Finally, a presentation by the US Census Bureau emphasized the need
for our participation in the 2020 census. The importance of keeping
respondent data strictly confidential was both emphasized and
reiterated. And, the US Census Bureau is offering census takers jobs at
$19/hour. Here’s a link to see if you qualify 2020 US Census Job Opportunities.
