Protecting Our Climate and Air

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 downtown Hartford and our other cities, and particulates from the hordes of cars clogging I-95 are all taking a toll on the health of Connecticut’s citizens. And you’ve seen the impact of stronger storms on our shoreline.

The good news is that there are solutions that protect your health while strengthening our state economy.

Connecticut Fund for the Environment 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: suing the federal government when it fails, advocating for strong state solutions that slash climate and air pollution while building a thriving renewable energy economy, and uniting the thousands of citizens from all walks of life who believe that together we can make Connecticut a climate leader.


Demand Solar for All

80 percent of Connecticut residents can’t install solar power. Shared solar can change that.
