increasing the domestic supply of clean, fuel-free energy. We deliver
solutions to climate change in the form of new wind power
generation and carbon offsets.
The Sustainable Energy

free solar photovoltaic systems to be installed on our municipal
buildings. Help reduce our town operating costs, make our tax dollars

Global warming and
are upon us and virtually all scientists agree that human activity is a
primary cause. Global temperatures and sea levels are rising.
Storms are increasing in frequency and intensity, causing
both floods and drought. Carbon emissions and other pollution
are fouling the air we breathe, the water we drink, and endangering
food stocks. These events are also damaging human health and
driving many species to extinction.
We can reduce these impacts and protect the environment our children
and grandchildren will inherit. The choices we make today and
in the coming years can help conserve the natural, economic, and social
character of Newtown. While the challenge is worldwide, it is also
local. Therefore, the Newtown community must think and act locally to
soften the impact of past activities on our future well-being.
While being aware of global initiatives, we will collaborate at the
community level to identify areas for conserving natural resources, to
promote greater use of renewable energy, to help reduce emissions and
pollution, and to increase individual awareness of ecology. We plan to
help our community live sustainably
and be good stewards for the earth.
