Warm greetings from CURE100! We hope you are enjoying the summer as well as a glimmer of light at the end of the tunnel in regards to COVID restrictions. At the same time, the news is full of climate disasters in our country and around the world, the latest being grave concern about Chicago.

This raises the question of whether President Biden's "Earthshot" goal of 50% Greenhouse Gas (GHG) reduction by 2030 is doable. Undoubtedly harder than President Kennedy's "Moonshot" of the 60s, take a look at this blog and this webinar for CURE100's take on this existential question.

Plastic Free July is a global movement that helps millions of people be part of the solution to plastic pollution, so we can have cleaner streets, oceans and beautiful communities. Will you be part of Plastic Free July by choosing to refuse single-use plastics? You can learn more here. The image on the right shows a handful of microplastic pollution easily gathered at Senasqua Park, right here on the banks of the Hudson. Take a few moments to raise your consciousness by looking for plastics on a waterway near you.

Even as the Croton Harmon and Bethlehem School Districts are planning to acquire 8 electric school buses, the Bus Electrification for School Transportation (BEST) tool for modeling cost savings from
going electric was presented and unveiled by Patty Buchanan in a webinar hosted by the New York League of Conservation Voters and Sierra Club. Recently, a new version of the tool was released that takes into account inflation in the cost calculations, a suggestion made by one of the webinar attendees. For more details, see the Resources tab of CURE100 and click on "Electric school bus resources." Also, see this letter to the editor of the Croton Gazette by Tom Theis sharing excellent advice on charging infrastructure for school buses.
