The Yale Center on Climate Change and Health released this week the Climate Change and Health in Connecticut: 2020 Report. The report tracks 19 indicators grouped into four categories—temperature, extreme events, infectious diseases and air quality—that were developed using publicly available data.

We had a great meeting on the evening of 11-21-19 with excellent presentations from Steve Wagner and Mark Scully. Steve is the chair of South Windsor’s Energy Committee, and he led a discussion about the great progress his town has made in energy cost reduction and their movement towards 100% renewables.
Mark is a member of PACE, People’s Alliance for Clean Energy. Founded in 1973, PACE is now devoted to developing plans for individual towns to move towards clean energy. They have an analysis template that will be quite useful as Windsor moves along its path towards 100% renewable energy supplies.
Here are links to download PDF copies of the PACE and South Windsor presentations.
