  • Meeting room will be marked
  • 350CT Monthly Meeting to report back on previous events and campaigns as well as make decisions on future events and actions.

    Dr. Robert K. Howarth, the Cornell University professor and scientist who has led the public exposure of methane leaks as the most dangerous short term threat to our climate, will be speaking at the Connecticut Forest & Park Association under the auspices of 350 CT, New England Food & Water Watch, and the Connecticut Sierra Club.   His work has been sited in over 1,500 newspapers globally, and he won honorable mention as one of “50 People Who Matter” in the annual Time Magazine Person of the Year issue for 2011.  We would like this presentation to expand the base for action around methane in Connecticut.  In addition, we propose that those who attend continue with a strategy planning session immediately following the presentation, with the goal of deciding on a date for a region wide action to call for an emergency state plan for a transition to 100% renewal energy.
