Recent reports about climate change – that it is impacting us right now and that we need to act before the window closes – should be a wake-up call. We must rapidly and dramatically reduce carbon pollution to assure that the global temperature does not rise more than 1.5 degrees Celsius. That seems dire, but there is a bright side – everything we do right now can help.
What does this have to do with our water? Climate change is water change. In Connecticut, we’re experiencing the effects of climate change through more intense storms, sea level rise and the unprecedented state-wide drought in 2017.
The Legislature’s decision to divert $145 million of clean energy funds to go to the General Fund was a major blow to addressing climate change, protecting our waters and damaged Connecticut’s economy.
