Jefferson County farm to host ‘What Happened in Glasgow’

CHIMACUM — Wednesday evening at Finnriver Farm & Cidery, three Jefferson County women will discuss their experiences earlier this month at the U.N. Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26).

Environmental filmmaker Jessica Plumb, Methane Initiative CEO Daphne Wysham and Rachel Cardone, the deputy director for the Stanford Program on Water, Health & Development, will present “What Happened in Glasgow,” an interactive evening at Finnriver, 124 Center Road.

The presentation, from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., is part of the Local 20/20’s Climate on Tap series facilitated by Laura Tucker.

“We want to help bring the goals of COP26 back to our county,” Plumb said.

“We have different backgrounds we bring (to the discussion),” Plumb said, adding each presenter will share some of her personal takeaways from the conference in Glasgow, Scotland, Oct. 31 through Nov. 13.

Wednesday evening’s conversation will also counter some of the headlines about climate action goals being watered down or not met, she said.

“There were some really positive takeaways,” Plumb said, adding those will provide fuel for further discussions in 2022.
