In July 2011, President Obama announced plans for nationwide clean car standards that will require new cars and light trucks to meet an average of 54.5 miles per gallon through 2025. The work of Environment Connecticut’s staff, members and allies to adopt clean car standards here in Connecticut as far back as 2004 helped pave the way for this step — the single biggest step our nation has ever taken to end its addiction to oil. Nathan Willcox, our federal global warming program director, had the honor of thanking the president in person.
From Long Island Sound to the Great Lakes, Americans throughout the country depend on our waters for fishing, recreation and clean drinking water. These waters are the home to some of our most cherished wildlife, like orcas, blue crabs and bald eagles. American families from coast to coast travel to our great waters every summer to relax and enjoy some of nature’s wonders.
