No one in Washington DC has been more vocal about the need to address climate change than Senator Sheldon Whitehouse. And here in Rhode Island, no one has been more vocal than Sierra Club director and former congressional candidate Abel Collins.
On Friday, at 2pm, these two leading climate activists will be together at the Ocean Mist in Matunuck – perhaps the most obvious example of how climate change is and will continue to alter coastal Rhode Island. The iconic Ocean State beach that is a mainstay of the Matunuck economy gets closer and closer to the water as climate change exacerbates coastal erosion.
