Northford, Connecticut

Clean Air-Cool Planet is dedicated to finding and promoting solutions to climate change. As coordinator of the Northeast Science Center Collaborative, Karin works with more than 70 member organizations, bridging the gap between the public’s understanding of global warming and the science of climate change.
