Clean Water Fund is coordinating outreach for this innovative effort to help residents of 14 towns save energy and save money on their utility bills. Clean Water Fund and a corps of recent college graduates are working closely with municipal leaders and local volunteers to help communities come together around the goal of helping 10% of households cut their energy use 20% over a 3 year period.
Connecticut residents want to protect ourselves and those we love, preventing harm especially to babies and young children. Our homes and our bodies should be safe from unwanted and dangerous intrusion. But there's a toxic problem putting our health at risk.
Parents, often moms, bear the brunt of finding safe products for their families. Connecticut has been a leader in banning toxic chemicals but we need the federal government to take action too! The Safe Chemicals Act of 2011 will ensure the products we use every day are free of chemicals that make our kids sick.
On Wednesday, August 10th, we will ask our Senators to join the brigade. Join us at Bushnell Park in Hartford to write letter and cards to our Senators! Contact Anne Hulick or Susan Eastwood for more information!

Evidence from decades of scientific scrutiny has overcome skepticism that mankind can alter the climate of the Earth. In 2001, the Intergovernmental Panel on climate change (IPCC) issued a scientifica assessment, concluding, "There is new and stronger evidence that most of the warming observed over the last fifty years is attributable to human activities."
This report (pdf), from the Connecticut Climate Coalition and Clean Water Fund, reviews Connecticut's progress on the Climate Change Action Plan released on February 15, 2005 looking at 14 critical policies which account for 91% of the total forecasted reductions ub 2010 and 93% of the total in 2020.
