A Connecticut environmental group is lamenting low fuel costs. Meeting in Hartford on Tuesday, the Connecticut League of Conservation Voters held their 16th environmental summit. William Dombos, a panelist at the event, was among those seeing red over the low price of gasoline and home heating oil, claiming the affordable prices are hurting the group’s clean energy agenda.
Concerned such low prices will derail Connecticut’s environmental efforts, the gathering is seeking more money from the state legislature and urging the public to use public transportation, ride bicycles and shun home heating oil for solar power.
None of the participants mentioned if they took public transportation or rode bicycles to the event or whether the building in which it was held – the Riverfront Boathouse – used solar power.
