Action Week 28: Senator Markey, Please Weigh In

Thank you to everyone doing these “5 minute or less” Monday Actions! We’re in week 28 of our 40-week count down on the Road to Paris (UN Climate Summit).

Our chorus grows louder every week thanks to YOU (and your friends – ask someone today to join you!)

This Week’s Monday Action:
Tell Your Senator to Be Bold On Climate Issues:

Live in MA? Ask Senator Ed Markey About Natural Gas…

Call his office:  617-565-8519  and/or
Email his office: Contact

Are you writing from another state other than Massachusetts? Look up your senator’s contact here

Here’s a sample email or phone script:

Dear Senator,
I am deeply concerned about climate change. This is the defining issue on which future generations will judge us. Therefore I urge you to be bold in fighting for real solutions to stop climate change. We look to you for your leadership.

Thank you! See you next week.
Please share this with friends in other states. They can look up their senators’ contact here.

You can comment about your experience with these Actions on the Pioneer Valley MOF blog, where you can review all the actions to date as well.

Looking for more details to communicate to Senator Markey?
You might also say and/or write:

Thank you very much for your vote against the Trans-Pacific Partnership or TPP last week. I would like to know what your #1 concern is about TPP! For instance, are you concerned, like I am, about the complete destruction of our constitutional integrity and the potential damages to our state’s natural resources if TPP were passed?

Thank you also for your April 22 Earth Day email: It’s time to stem the tide on Climate Change. I missed seeing “Natural Gas” as one of the trouble industries you called out…

Here in the Commonwealth we are feeling the threat of the Natural Gas industry through the proposed pipeline. There are many similarities with the XL Keystone which you have so staunchly opposed. Please assure me that you will continue to fight this industry also. Thank you for all you do.

We need you to be bold and visionary in fighting this threat to the common good.

Thank you for all you do!
You are part of a rapidly expanding movement in a race to save today’s children’s futures. Do you know about Climate Action Now yet? Here’s the most recent weekly newsletter.

P.S.  Reports from 350.org relate that a trade agreement such as “the TPP would eliminate environmental reviews of fracked liquid natural gas export facilities, which could be used to move half of the gas drilled in the US overseas. These massive, multibillion dollar fossil fuel projects would make fracking companies a fortune — and be completely exempt from federal environmental review.” This must be prevented. Here is 350.org‘s petition to Congress for you.

Onward!
Sincerely yours,
The Pioneer Valley Community Organizing Team
