Monday Action for the week of 12/19/16 – Thank Attorney General Maura Healey for standing up to Exxon and upholding our State constitution.
Remember, if you have time: Calls and letters count more.
Dear Attorney General Maura Healey,
I am urgently concerned about climate change. This is the gravest threat facing us all and future generations depend on us to halt it. We need to get 100% of our energy from clean, renewable sources like solar and wind, and become the energy efficiency model for the world.
I want to thank you for standing up to Exxon and to congratulate you for the good news that Texas federal district judge Ed Kinkeade cancelled the deposition he had scheduled for you, regarding your Office’s courageous investigation of ExxonMobil.
Mothers Out Front celebrates this victory for your investigation, for Massachusetts law, for corporate accountability, and for our growing power to protect our children. Bravo!
We admire your work and are inspired by the study you initiated which concluded the following: Increased Gas Capacity Not Needed to Meet State’s Electric Reliability Needs.
You are indeed the People’s Lawyer, and we people need you to defend our Massachusetts constitution and Article 97 which states that we shall have the right to clean air and water, freedom from excessive and unnecessary noise, and the natural, scenic, historic, and aesthetic qualities of our environment. A court ruling threatens to let Kinder Morgan trample all that in Otis State Forest.
In the name of the children, thank you for upholding our MA constitution and may your season be bright.
