    I actually thought it was very good and well balanced. Each speaker complimented the others.

    Nadine - Did provide urgency - Particulates are masking the full effect of carbon pollution - things are worse than they seem.

    Anthony - Need to be smart about who our audience is and meet them where they are. Not everybody understands the issue in the same way.

    Sen. Blumenthal - We have an opportunity now with Obama and a Democratic controlled Senate to move on this issue. Concentrate on Environmental policy as good economic policy to win over Republicans - several good examples here in CT.

    Everyone was urged to keep working on the organizational front - keep organizing to put pressure on our policymakers.

    No new information, not enough urgency.
