BELFAST, Maine — The city’s Climate Crisis Committee and Belfast Free Library hosted a talk with four panelists March 29 called “After Summit: How Do We Get to Carbon Neutrality by 2045?” which looked at the relative merits of natural gas and heat pumps as heating sources.

It was prompted by Summit Natural Gas’s proposing, then rescinding, its estimated $90 million natural gas pipeline expansion through the Midcoast. The roughly 30 people who attended the forum had the chance to ask panelists questions and share comments.

The panelists were Matt Marks, executive director of the Association of General Contractors of Maine and a representative on the Maine Climate Council; Dan Sosland, president of the Acadia Center; Andy Meyer, senior program manager and expert in heat pumps with Efficiency Maine; and Jonathan Fulford, member of the executive committee of the Sierra Club’s Maine chapter.
