Global warming and climate change 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.
