Thank you to everyone taking these “5 minute or less” Monday Actions with us! We’re in week 37 of our 40-week count down on the Road to Paris (UN Climate Summit).
Today’s Monday Action: Find Out What Senator Ed Markey Says About the New Tennessee Gas Pipeline Proposal?
Call his office: 617-565-8519
Here’s a sample email or phone script:
Dear Senator Markey,
I am deeply concerned about climate change.
We look to you to make Massachusetts the leader in divesting from fossil fuels and growing our economy with home-grown wind and solar power at a highly accelerated pace.
Thank you for your statement rebutting attacks on the Clean Power Plan, Obama’s climate vision, on this past Thursday, March 12.
We need you to be bold and visionary in fighting this threat to the common good.
Push forward, we support you.
~ Your Name

P.S. Since the 1970’s Senator Markey has been active on climate change, and when the first proposal for the TGP came out he was strongly against it. With respect to the change to the proposed Kinder Morgan pipeline route that goes through New Hampshire, Markey’s office hasn’t yet taken an official position.
