Combatting Climate Change Requires Advocacy

"APCC had the pleasure of hosting Dr. John Holdren to provide a science-based, and very sobering, talk on climate change last week. Dr. Holdren’s presentation slides can be found on our website and I encourage you to spend the time they warrant to read and digest them."

APCC has several options for businesses who want to support our vital work.

Because the Cape's environment IS its economy.
