While the process continues to the final report, we need to stop new fossil fuel power plants, like the one in process at Killingly.

The Killingly power plant will move us in the opposite direction from these goals. It needs to be stopped.

Is CT coordinating carbon dioxide reduction activities with other neighboring states?
Ben Martin
01:04:14
ISO New England is trying to force CT to shoulder the risk and pollution from the NTE Power plant in Killingly
Ben Martin
01:06:55
wind energy reduces wind damage from storms and tidal energy can replace fossil fuels causing worse and more frequent storms

Sorry that I got on the Zoom late, but I wanted to emphasize that I don't think we can meet even our modest climate goals if the NTE fracked gas plant is built in Killingly. Such plants have been stopped in other Northeast states, why not here? Let's not leave CT holding the gas bag.

I agree with Melinda. Ben and Joel. NTE in Killingly must be stopped.

Google Peels on Wheels New Haven to find out how a business that help people who can not compost.
Ben Martin
01:22:49
gardening and composting are great but most pollution is coming from large industrial sources and emissions must be limited there , starting. by not building anymore fossil fuel infrastructure
Rachel Hiskes

Google Gather New Haven to learn about community gardens for food security and for health, not to mention creating community.

I just interviewed someone in CA about Gov. Newsom's pro-climate policies that promote actions on the demand side but CA ranks as one of the top oil producers of all the states. She said it's "one hand clapping" to promote renewables, electric cars, etc, but not stop production of fossil fuels.
