UPEC offers livestream Thursday

MARQUETTE — The Upper Peninsula Environmental Coalition’s livestream series “The Energy Show” will present “Line 5: Where Do We Stand Now?” and “How Your Vote Affects Michigan’s Environment This Year” via Facebook and Zoom at 7 p.m. Thursday.

“The Energy Show” is the Upper Peninsula Environmental Coalition Livestream program that looks at the future of energy use in the U.P. Thursday’s livestream will feature Jennifer McKay, policy director of the Tip of the Mitt Watershed Council in Petoskey. McKay “has extensive experience on water issues and frequently testifies before legislative committees on bills as well as talking to groups,” organizers said in an announcement. McKay and the UPEC livestream hosts will have a conversation about what is happening with Enbridge’s Line 5 fuel pipeline, including the latest legislative, legal, regulatory and technical issues.

“Then, with the election less than a week away, we’ll switch to voting, with an environmental focus. We’ll go over some basics in case you’re not familiar with Michigan voting requirements,” organizers said in the announcement. “Then we’ll talk about how your vote affects public environmental policy. A good example is Proposition 1, which asks voters how state trust funds for our natural resource acquisitions and infrastructure should be spent. You’ll come away better informed and (if you haven’t voted yet) better equipped to cast a vote that reflects your priorities.”
