350 CT is the Connecticut chapter of 350.org. In 2008, a group of professors and concerned scientists founded the now-international, mass-action, grassroots campaign to curb climate change by demanding an immediate timetable to phase out the burning of fossil fuels.
Our mission in CT is to work towards:
- 100% Renewable Energy
- An End to Fracked Gas Expansion
- Green Jobs for Fossil Fuel Workers
- An End to Environmental Racism
- Mass Transit for All
We do this by meeting monthly, hosting educational speakers, and forming relevant committees to achieve specific goals. We work with other organizations to form a united front because our opposition is the fossil fuel industry. We take our actions seriously – chipping away at the massive carbon-burning systems is no easy work. We need help. We need all the help we can get. Please Join Us.
350 CT will meet the following Sunday Aug 29 at 3:00 PM
The Climate Chaos roulette wheel will come up Connecticut tomorrow as Hurricane Henri is expected drop a month’s worth of rain on the state and the winds are expected to knock out power to more than half the state. The power and frequency of storms like this are predicted to increase in the coming years due to the damage fossil fuel companies have intentionally done to the ecosystem on which we all depend. As Melinda Tuhus lays out in her latest op-ed , we must force our representatives in government to not only make positive sounding statements about climate change but to match those words with bold action that will transition us to climate and energy justice.
We encourage all our members to make sure they stay safe through the coming storm and join us next Sunday to plan how our society can make sure the climate crisis we are seeing right now doesn’t get exponentially worse.
