Wildfires, droughts, intense storms, and threatened coastlines are part of nearly every news cycle. Climate change is real. And it is happening now, right before our eyes.
The same pollution threatening our global climate is affecting the lives of residents here in Connecticut and New York. Dirty air from coal plants in the Midwest, diesel buses in our cities, and particulates from the hordes of cars clogging I-95 are all taking a toll on the health of people across the region. And you’ve seen the impact of stronger storms on our shoreline.
Save the Sound is leading on bold climate action through policy leadership and on-the-ground projects that help our neighborhoods and ecosystems adapt to escalating climate threats.
NEW: Learn how Connecticut legislators—and people like you—can pass policies to ensure the state meets its greenhouse gas reduction targets in an equitable way. Read the Climate Action Plan 2022.
We’re getting results: helping write and defend laws that cut greenhouse gases, advancing renewable energy growth and electric vehicle adoption, and crafting campaigns that connect people with their leaders to make their voices heard. With storms getting stronger and deluges becoming more frequent every year, we’re restoring coastal marshes, rivers, and floodplains to protect neighborhoods from flooding. We must get this right, right now. It’s about taking action today to benefit generations to come.Read more >
Save the Sound is dedicated to using every tool in our toolbox to push state, regional, and national leaders to address climate change. We are taking action now, and in many forms: advocating for strong state solutions that slash climate and air pollution while building a thriving renewable energy economy, suing governments when they fail, and uniting the thousands of citizens from all walks of life who believe that together we can make Connecticut a climate leader.
