In Connecticut, the Norwalk Land Trust is scrapping a plan to create a public bird sanctuary. The $1 million contract would have preserved an environmentally-sensitive coastal property. But the plan’s controversy proved too much for the land trust.
The Norwalk Land Trust said in a statement that its decision to rescind the contract was made “after it became clear the contract was unenforceable.”
Supporters wanted to preserve the peninsular property to protect a surrounding tidal estuary in Rowayton.
Connecticut has significantly reduced greenhouse gas emissions over the past two decades. That’s according to a new report from the state’s Department of Energy and Environmental Protection, which shows emissions levels were lower in 2010 than they’ve been since 1990.
