Westporter Dawn Henry will talk to us on November 7th about the impact of climate change, and the need to shift to clean, renewable energy, and she will tell us how we can take action in our own lives.
She and her husband bought a Tesla three years ago — not because it was an electric vehicle, but because it was a “hot, sexy car” — took delivery at the factory in Fremont, CA, then spent three weeks driving home, learning from fellow Tesla owners at charging stations about the need to move away from fossil fuels.
The election later that year encouraged her to get engaged and to use her professional skills as a communicator to raise awareness and get others engaged.
In 2017 she attended Al Gore’s three-day Climate Reality Project training. Since then she has traveled the state using the presentation he made famous in his Oscar-winning documentary An Inconvenient Truth to bring home the need to make climate change a personal priority.
Ms. Henry is a volunteer in many local sustainability-related organizations, including Sustainable Westport, the Electric Vehicle Club of Connecticut, and the Connecticut Fund for the Environment/Save the Sound.
