Earth is our Colored Planet Connection. Of all planets seen, none are like ours. Earth is by far the most dynamic planet when seen from space, having light blue with white clouds; oceans and light scattered by the atmosphere making it prevailing blue. Depending on the area seen in an individual picture, brown, yellow and green continents can easily be seen or parts of Colored Planet. From space or on our Planet the colors of life connect us all.
Colored Planet has a vision and a course of action to return power to the people through advocating, educating and empowerment. We know the installation of appropriate renewable energy for the not for profit would aid the organization and the well being of the Planet at the same time. We see enlisting local able-bodies and minds to gain the clean tech skills are necessary components to make New Haven an environmental and sustainable city of the future.
Colored Planet came together after the financial and oil meltdown of 2008 when we realized that these events did not bode well for anyone dependent upon fossil fuel addiction as it is so pervasive throughout our entire way of life. We decided then to take action and to set the wheels in motion to begin educating New Haven’s working class community and not for profits ways to combat their fossil fuel addiction. These organizations did not have then nor now the advantages of the tax incentives nor the rebates to fund renewable energy projects.
The economy has not made a turn for the better for most. The cost for all fuel has escalated energy calibrations based upon the cost of a barrel of oil. Their supporting members’ cost of living has risen but their living wages have not kept pace. Which means that the houses of faith donations have become a thin shadow of what they were prior to 2008. Colored Planet sees education of the general population, collaboration with community leaders and advocating conservation of our human and energy resources as weapons to combat climate change and global warming, ignorance of energy policy and poverty.
