|Just 5 weeks to go in our countdown on the UN Climate Summit ‘Road to Paris’.
Today’s Action: The Future is wicked SCARY unless you act NOW.
This Halloween we are thinking of something really scary, something that’s not going away unless we all take bold steps NOW:
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.
Senator Rosenberg traveled to Washington to hand deliver to FERC our testimony about Kinder Morgan’s proposed pipeline. He asked if the Commonwealth could have a seat at the table during the decision making process. No state has made that request before, but FERC could allow us to participate if you ask.
I urge you to request that Massachusetts be given a formal role as a cooperating agency working with FERC as it reviews Kinder Morgan’s application to build the Tennessee Gas Pipeline. FERC needs to know that we want our utility companies to transition ASAP from the fossil fuel past to the renewable energy future. Building a new pipeline will slow down this critical change. Please help find alternatives to the pipeline.
Massachusetts has been a leader in the battle against climate change. As we approach the climate talks in Paris, we can add to the momentum by going beyond the goals required by the Federal government and even by our own state legislation to lower our own carbon emissions.
