MA Senators: Turn the Tide with Energy Bill

Tell MA State Senators we won’t get another chance: We need you to create an Omnibus Energy Bill that will turn the tide of the climate crisis NOW.
————————————————–
Dear Senator,
I am urgently concerned about climate change. This is the gravest threat facing us all and future generations depend on us to halt it. Therefore I oppose all new fossil fuel infrastructure and want a fair price on carbon. We have to be bold and act fast.

Senator, we need you to work towards an Omnibus Energy Bill in the Senate that will turn the tide of the climate crisis! Massachusetts has 8000 megawatts of wind potential in the federal waters off our shores. That’s enough to power every home in the state. And just last week Secretary of State John Kerry announced that Boston will host a major climate summit in 2017. Let’s push ahead! There is no time to lose: It is imperative that we increase our commitment to offshore wind to at least 2000 megawatts; restore fair reimbursement rates to community and low-income solar; double the Renewable Energy Portfolio Standard (RPS); ensure environmental standards for large transmission projects, and most emphatically ban any form of pipeline tax.

Thank you for all you do, I know it’s not easy. We are counting on you to improve this key energy bill.

Sincerely,

YOUR NAME
YOUR TOWN
With Mothers Out Front
