Dear Senator,
I am urgently concerned about climate change and therefore oppose a pipeline tax.

We do not need new gas infrastructure and ratepayers should not foot this bill. Please sign, or let me know if you have already signed the letter against the pipeline tax that Senators Eldridge and Jehlen are circulating in support of S.1847 and S.1855.

Thank you for your consideration of this matter. Future generations very urgently depend on you to lead on climate issues.
Sincerely,
YOUR NAME, YOUR ADDRESS

Dear AG: Investigate Eversource

This is your Monday Action for the week of 10/23/17:
We write our elected officials every week, because they work for us.

Dear Actionist,
Your own story can inspire others to act. Email back if you’d like to get involved or send us a short video about why you fight climate change.

MONDAY ACTION:
Contact 
Attorney General, Maura Healey
Call: (617) 727-2200 or TTY: (617) 727-4765
Email: AGO@state.ma.us
Write: One Ashburton Place; Boston, MA 02108-1518

Dear Maura Healey,
Thank you for beginning to investigate allegations that Eversource and Avangrid artificially constrained gas pipeline capacity.

These are extremely troubling allegations, and it’s clear that there are many questions still to be answered.

Please use the full authority of your office including your subpoena power, if necessary, to get to the bottom of this matter, and work with your counterparts throughout New England to develop better rules to protect us from the utilities’ practices. I appreciate that your office had already solicited an independent study that found MA does not need more gas infrastructure to power our grid. (AG Study: Increased Gas Capacity Not Needed to Meet State’s Electric Reliability Needs.)

It’s time to fully investigate whether the findings on the electric power side regarding the benefits of energy efficiency, demand response and renewables also apply on the heating side, to show that we don’t need new pipelines for gas utilities either.

As you know, methane is 86 times worse than CO2 as a global warming gas and we must not saddle today’s children with a melting planet. Yet for-profit utilities including Eversource are still pushing for pipeline expansion. We know that pollution is the largest environmental cause of disease and premature death in the world today (the Lancet, October 19, 2017) and clean energy has never been more urgent.

I furthermore also applaud you for suing the Trump administration to uphold the Clean Power Plan. Please keep up the good work.

Sincerely,(Your name and address with zip code)

Monday Action: Gas to Mass = Coal to Newcastle

PIONEER VALLEY
Randi_DoBetter_Meme 70%
Here is your Monday Action for the week of 9/25/17: Tell your State Senator that bringing more natural gas to Mass is like bringing more coal to Newcastle.

There’s a quasi-independent entity that operates the electric grid in the region called ISO New England or ISO-NE. They keep up-to-the-minute data online if you want to see exactly when the peak electric use was today, how much wholesale electricity costs right now and lots of other cool, nerdy stuff if you’re into that. If you’re not, you just need to know that ISO-NE is responsible for keeping the lights on and they’re serious about reliability as well as cost.

A team of Mothers Out Front spoke up at an ISO-NE meeting recently to question why they assumed more “natural” gas will be used to generate electricity, when they also predicted that solar and energy efficiency will cover any increase in electricity use for the next 10 years. It seems like they want to use more gas, and to justify building more pipelines, even though they know it’s not necessary.

We need our legislators to ask hard questions of ISO-NE too. Look up your State Senator here and call with questions of your own. Here’s some talking points:

  • New England already relies on natural gas to generate over 50% of our electricity, why would we want to add more?
  • With 50% of households also heating with gas, we need to diversify our energy sources
  • We want ISO-NE to help lead the transition to a clean grid — renewables backed by storage (check out this video of Sterling MA leading the way) — as quickly as possible.
  • We see California and New York embracing distributed energy, and want ISO-NE to do the same.

That’s it for this week! Thank you for doing your part in moving us toward a clean energy future.

Senators, Don’t Fast-Track Fracked Gas

PLAN-NE logo

This Monday Action, for the week of 7/31/17, is brought to you by our friends at Pipeline Awareness Network for the Northeast. Contact Senators Markey and Warren and ask them to oppose the energy bill that would make exporting fracked gas easy. For the sake of the generations to come we have to stop building any new fossil fuel infrastructure.

Congress is trying to rush through a pipeline fast-track bill that expedites Liquified Natural Gas (LNG) terminal approvals (creating “need” for more pipelines), requires increased deference to FERC from state, local and tribal governments, and much more. The House version – H.R. 2910 – just passed last week. The word is that the Senate bill could be voted on early this week, and that Bernie Sanders is so far the only Senator to have spoken out againstit!

Please make a quick call:

Capital switchboard: (202) 224-3121 – they will connect you to your Senators.

Basic message:  Please oppose S.1460 – it would fast-track LNG export and pipeline reviews, instead of giving them the additional scrutiny they need!  This energy bill moves us in the wrong direction in many ways.  The fossil fuel industry doesn’t need more handouts and FERC needs major reform, not more power to do the fossil fuel companies’ bidding.

Here is a fact sheet with more information about the bill; here is the full text.

While phone calls are best, here’s a quick link from Food & Water Watch with an editable form email that has the basics.


You are making the changes we need! Thank you for your effort. Please share this Monday Action with friends and family across the country.

See you next Monday.

Monday Action: Let’s Light Up the Map in MA with Climate Action

PIONEER VALLEY
cost of carbon

Here’s your Monday Action for the Week of 7/17: Call and ask if your State Rep has signed the letter in support of Rep. Benson’s carbon pricing bill, and if not, ask them to do so right away. Then ask a friend to call their Rep.

We have a brand new tool we’re about to launch called Light Up The Map (LUM for short). We’re still working on it, but we couldn’t wait any longer because we need to reach across the state to show strong support for carbon pricing among our Massachusetts Representatives. That’s what LUM is for.
You:

  • register at Light Up the Map
  • make your call or send an email
  • click that you did it and then,
  • Voila!, you’ve added another light to the map on the site.
  • send the link to LUM to someone you know elsewhere in the state, like, in the Reps’ districts listed below or others you’ll see on the LUM website.

Check back on the LUM website in a few days after you do your action, or if you have trouble with the site, because we’re going to be adding and fixing every day.

Representatives who have shown support for the bill, but haven’t yet signed the letter:

Rep. Diana DiZoglio – North Andover, Methuen, Lawrence & Haverhill.
Rep. Paul Mark – Northern parts of Franklin and Berkshire Counties.
Rep. Adrian Madaro – East Boston
Rep. Carlos Gonzalez – Downtown Springfield
Rep. Colleen Garry – Dracut and Tyngsborough
Rep. Paul Brodeur – Wakefield
Rep. Tricia Farley-Bouvier – Pittsfield
Rep. Edward Coppinger – West Roxbury to part of Brookline
Rep. Alice Peisch – Wellesley, Weston


Thank you! Let us know what you think of Light Up the Map, and let us know any suggestions you have by emailing us at info.ma.pioneervalley@gmail.com. We’re so excited to see how it works and hearing from you will help us make it better.


There’s actually another bill that’s close to our hearts that we want you to know about.

Tomorrow, Tuesday, July 18th, an important climate bill by our Amherst/Pelham/Granby rep, Solomon Goldstein-Rose, will have a hearing along with other bills 10:30am – 1pm. The bill is H.3473, An Act relative to creating energy jobs, before the Joint Committee on Economic Development and Emerging Technologies.

The bill aims to make it easier for companies to develop clean energy technologies, which will stimulate investment, growth and new jobs. A carbon fee and dividend is one of 5 parts of this bill. Read more here.

Submit your written testimony for H.3473 by writing to the Chairs of the Committee:
Senator Eric Lesser: eric.lesser@masenate.gov
Representative Joseph Wagner Joseph.Wagner@mahouse.gov

Your testimony can be very simple. Tell them you care about climate change and why. Say that you support Representative Goldstein-Rose’s bill H.3473.

  • Mention that clean energy, storage and carbon pricing are all necessary to make our economy strong, grow jobs, and keep our energy dollars in state.
  • The bill does all this without appropriating any money, rather creates affordable financing, attracts private battery development with tax incentives, and has a revenue neutral carbon fee and dividend.

Remember last week we encouraged you to make videos to speak your mind to Governor Baker. Well, we still want you to do that.

MOF lined up at Gov office
More than 100 mothers and others turned out last Tuesday to Stand with Andrea outside Governor Baker’s office – to support her ongoing efforts to help stop the compressor station in Weymouth.
We are so delighted that some of you have already joined in the social media campaign we kicked off last week. We’re sure hoping many more of you will do videos, too. Short messages are great. Learn about the video campaign. See examples on our Facebook page.

What Should I Say in My Video to Gov. Baker?

1. Record your video. You’ll probably repeat this step a few times before you decide there was a reason you didn’t go into show business.
2. Post your video on your Facebook page. 
Include in your post #MothersProtectCommunities @MothersOutFront.
3. Share your video on our Pioneer Valley MOF Facebook page.
4. Email videos to story@mothersoutfront.org

Time for Mama Bear to Speak to the Governor about #Weymouth


mama-bear.jpg

Monday Action for the week of 7/10/17.

This week’s Monday Action builds on last week’s call to the Governor’s office. This week we’re asking you to channel that Mother Bear inside you to speak to the Governor, virtually. And remember to scroll down to see what events are happening this week; there’s lots of ways to join in.

Across the state, Mothers Out Front members are taking action over the next 10 days to move Governor Baker away from his support of fossil fuels by focusing all our effort on the proposed Weymouth compressor station.

Key permits from the state are needed to build the station. Those permits are due in August. There’s evidence that the existing industry already is causing violations of MassDEP guidelines for 8 toxic air pollutants. The air quality estimates provided by the pipeline company didn’t take all the existing pollutants into account.

Now is the time to mobilize our power as mothers and others who speak for the next generations.

There’s two actions this week:

Join Mothers Out Front at the State House

If you’re near Boston, join us tomorrow, July 11th, at noon, in front of the State House. Then we’ll line the halls in front of Baker’s office, silently urging him to visit the compressor station site and meet with the community. For more information contact info.ma.pioneervalley@mothersoutfront.org and we’ll put you in touch with the organizers.

Make a Video to share

Here comes the bit about channeling Mama Bear. We’re asking you to speak to the Governor by making your own short video. What should you tell him? First introduce yourself. Tell him why this matters. Whose future are you protecting? Tell him about your loved ones, maybe even have them join you in recording your message. Choose one of these three things to ask him to do:

  • Visit the proposed site and meet with the community.
  • Deny all permits for Weymouth because they violate regulations.
  • Conduct independent air quality testing at the site.

The next step is to join the chorus of voices we’ll create on social media. Post your video on your Facebook page or on ours. In your post, write why you’re doing this and include @MothersOutFront so we’ll find it and can post it. Check our Facebook page for examples of videos and please share them too. This is what social media is great for – echoing an important message.

If you’re not on Facebook or Twitter, you can send us a link to your video and we’ll put it on our Facebook page. (If you don’t know how to send a link to your video, contact us, or ask your teenage granddaughter, for help.)

This isn’t so easy

Yes, we know this is not your typical Monday Action. Feel ridiculous talking to your phone camera? Say so! The truth is that this is one of the things that stands out about the Mothers Out Front message. We’ll do things we never thought we could do because the children we love are depending on us to raise our voices! Wow, that’s really powerful. 

If there’s just no way the video is going to happen, here’s last week’s action. You can do it again, but this time write a letter or call if you already emailed.


You are making the changes we need! Thank you for your effort. Please share Monday Actions with friends.

See you next Monday.

Tell Our Governor: Stop New Gas Infrastructure in Weymouth

Sit_with_Andrea.jpg
Moms and dads join Weymouth resident Andrea Honore in the Governor’s office, waiting for him to meet with her about the Weymouth Compressor Station. She’s been there every day during her lunch break for over 70 days. Ask the Governor to visit Weymouth with Andrea.

Monday Action for the week of 7/3/17.

This week’s Monday Action is to tell Governor Baker to oppose the effort to build the Weymouth compressor station and to refuse to let the cost of building fossil fuel infrastructure be passed on to the public. Also, please look below for local activities in the Pioneer Valley.

The good news is that another gas pipeline, Access Northeast, that would have cut through communities in MA, CT, and NY, has been shelved for the foreseeable future! YAY TEAM! Your calls and emails do make a difference! Savor the win on this Independence Day weekend.

But our work is not over. The South Shore was, up until last week, facing two projects that depended on the Weymouth Compressor station: Atlantic Bridge and Access Northeast. Spectra is still awaiting permit approvals from Massachusetts for Atlantic Bridge. Though ANE has been withdrawn, our fight against the Weymouth compressor station continues. We still have to defeat Atlantic Bridge.

Part of the reason Access Northeast has been shelved is because the economics of fossil fuel infrastructure don’t work. Last year, the State Supreme Court shot down the Baker Administration’s pipeline tariff. However, utilities and pipeline companies remain determined to find a way to make ratepayers – us – pay to build infrastructure we don’t want or need.

Our US Senators Markey and Warren have taken a stand against the Weymouth compressor station. The candidates for Governor have all spoken out in opposition to it. It’s time for Governor Baker to take action to protect our neighbors, our children, our clean energy economy.

Call the Governor. Use the text here as talking points. Or email, but be sure to put it your way. Say why you care.


Dear Governor Baker,

I am urgently concerned about climate change. The children I love depend on us for a livable future. I want you to accelerate the pace of change in policies to ensure those children have hope for their own and their world’s health.

The Weymouth compressor station is not just a federal issue as you’ve said before, it’s a local and state issue that you have the power to allow or deny.

  • Direct the Department of Environmental Protection and Coastal Zone Management to deny vital permits.
  • New data shows high levels of air pollutants are already present near the proposed new compressor station in Weymouth. A health assessment must be done before permits are given.
  • At least go visit with Andrea Honore, who has been waiting for you to take a serious look at the proposed site. You’ll see how close the proposed site is to parks and neighborhoods.
  • We expect you to stand up for us against the gas pipeline and utility companies’ efforts to finance their pipelines by passing on the costs to ratepayers.
  • You have committed us to bold action on climate by signing on to the Climate Alliance in support  of the Paris Agreement. We cannot continue to build infrastructure for fossil fuels and meet our climate goals.

Thank you for your work on behalf of my family and the clean, healthy future we want.
Sincerely,
