Governor Baker Put the Brakes on Climate Disruption!

Good Monday Morning — 
Just 13 weeks to go in our countdown to the UN Climate Talks!Today’s Action:  Put the Brakes on Climate Disruption.

Suggested message:

“Dear Governor,

I am urgently concerned about climate change. This is the defining issue on which future generations will judge us. I urge you to be bold — and help Massachusetts put the brakes on Climate Disruption.

We need cars powered by clean electricity, net zero energy and much more energy efficient homes and buildings. We need to use smart technology to reduce our state’s carbon emissions by 80% by 2050 – or sooner – in keeping with the Global Warming Solutions Act!
I am therefore deeply opposed to your proposed Executive Order 562 that would erode our State’s great environmental strides.

What’s more, I am 100% in support of removing the caps on net metering policy which is hurting our state’s solar business!

Thank you.
Sincerely,
YOUR NAME
With Mothers Out Front – Mobilizing for a Livable Climate

P.S. The Cool Solutions report, just released by Environment Massachusetts can point you in the right direction with ten game-changers that will help fight global warming.

That’s it, you’re done. See you next week!
THANK YOU so much for reaching out! Whether or not you voted for the governor, s/he works for you. Emails, letters, calls- all count equally to elected officials. What counts is your voice: Aides tally up issues and zip codes and report to the governor what voters are saying.

Do you have time to do more?
Right now, gas companies are pushing the MA government to make the public pay to build and live with dangerous unnecessary pipelines cutting across hard-won protected lands and aquifers. These pipelines are not for the public good, but will certainly increase our rates and help gas companies take the gas to the global market from our shores. 

People are really pushing back. We saw it in Greenfield last month. It’s working and we need to keep at it:

This terrific grass-roots group MassPLAN has been organizing to stop the pipeline. You can Help Pipe Line Awareness Network for the Northeast, Inc. (PLAN-NE)’s Intervenor Status by becoming a member – it’s free, just add your name to their efforts.

Here is their call to action DEAR GOVERNOR, LET ME TELL YOU…
A physical pile of comments is hard to ignore so: If you like, you might send something each day this month. Print out and clip their list of articles , and send in your own thoughts. Fill Baker’s office with complaints! Do it with your friends and family! This is how to stop the pipeline.

Thank you for doing Monday Actions! You are the change we need to see in the world.
Please invite your people to join you in Monday Actions!
