Pass Carbon Pricing For Paris

This week’s Monday Action from Pioneer Valley Mothers Out Front: Ask your State Senator to support Carbon Fee and Dividend.

It’s up to all of us. Trump has made that very clear.

Governor Baker signed us up to support the Paris Agreement by joining the U.S. Climate Alliance last Friday. Next time you give Baker a call, thank him for standing with Paris. But he needs to do more than talk. And so do we. We need to show up.

So can you step up your activism game? We have three opportunities to speak in person to our State Senators (and Reps) in the next few weeks. Two are to support Carbon Pricing. Want a little help understanding Carbon Pricing? Here’s a cartoon explanation.

1. June 12th at 6pm in Springfield. You can come and support or you can speak to Senators at the MA Clean Energy Future tour. Carpools will leave at 4:45PM from Sheldon Field in Northampton (3 County Fairgrounds entrance). Email info.ma.pioneervalley@mothersoutfront.org.
2. June 13th Carbon Pricing Lobby Day in Boston! It’s not hard and it’s empowering to speak to state legislators in Boston. You go in a group, you get trained.
3. June 20th Committee hearing at the State House on several bills including Carbon Pricing bills. Please sign up here.

The sample words below could become your testimony. Be sure to make it your own, add the ages of the children in your life, tell what makes you care.


Dear Senator,

I am urgently concerned about climate change. Future generations are depending on us to transition quickly to clean energy for their health and the health of our climate. That’s why I support carbon pricing.

Carbon pricing is the fastest way to reduce carbon emissions because of the financial, health and climate benefits it provides. By putting a fee on fossil fuels we can promote the clean energy economy, create jobs, and motivate conservation of energy. This will take us a long way to meet our part of the Paris Agreement. It’s up to us now.

Please be a vocal leader for Carbon Fee and Dividend. This approach makes sense for the Commonwealth and for the world. We must take bold actions to curb climate change for the sake of the generations to come. There’s no time to waste.

Sincerely,

Obama: Ban Extraction on Our Land and Water

Happy Memorial Day–

Today’s Monday Action: Urge Obama to stop listening to the fossil fuel lobby: He must ban oil and gas leasing in all federal lands and waters.
————————————————–
Dear President Obama,
Stop listening to the fossil fuel lobby, listen to your people: 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.

Have you noticed? The tide has turned: On May 23 Kinder Morgan withdrew the NED pipeline right after the children won a huge victory on May 17 when the MA Supreme Judicial Court ordered the Commonwealth to create and implement regulations to meet its carbon emission reduction mandates.

I strongly disagree with your assistant secretary of energy for fossil fuels, Chris Smith, who just said that we cannot Keep It in the Ground. He is wrong, he is biased, he worked for Chevron and Texaco for more than a decade: Stop listening to the fossil fuel lobby. Keep It in the Ground we must, and we shall. We must break free from fossil fuels today:

Methane levels jumped 11 parts per billion from 2014 to 2015, nearly double the rate they were increasing from 2007 to 2013. The fracking that your administration has embraced is a major contributor to methane pollution. You cannot pretend to move on climate change and promote fracking and other extraction. A Harvard study has shown that the US is the biggest methane polluter in the world. This must stop!

We urgently need you to use your remaining time in office to ban oil and gas leasing in all federal waters and lands, something the Center for Biological Diversity and more than 45 other groups sought in a legal petition filed 3/29/16, an action you have the full legal and moral authority to take. 

Sir, it’s urgent that you do the right thing. That’s what we elected you to do. We need you. Stop listening to fossil fuel companies and their representatives, listen to your people. Thank you.
Sincerely,

YOUR NAME

The New Sexy: Stop Wasting Gas

Today’s Monday Action: The upcoming omnibus energy bill in the MA Legislature is HUGE. We need it to phase out fossil fuels:
Write your state legislators to make gas companies fix all their gas leaks and seriously ramp up energy efficiency measures statewide.
————————————————–
Dear Senator Rosenberg,

Thank you for your work in opposing the NED project and holding Berkshire Gas’ feet to the fire about its moratorium.

I am urgently concerned about climate change. This is the gravest threat facing us all and future generations depend on us to halt it. I need to see us get 100% of energy from clean, renewable sources like solar and wind, and become the energy efficiency model for the world– Good Old Yankee Values and Know-How in action.

I believe that in order to meet our climate goals, we must learn to meet our development needs while using much less fossil fuel such as gas, and fast.  If the state invests in doing more with less gas, gas companies like Berkshire Gas will surely end their moratorium.  Two things I ask today:

Get gas companies to fix all their leaks ASAP. We are wasting our gas supply daily through thousands of leaks statewide. Consumers pay for that. But the worst is the huge amount of methane leaking. New pipelines leak as much as the older ones because the industry is laying pipelines so fast they’re cutting corners that could have disastrous results like the gas explosion in Pennsylvania last week.

Ramp up energy efficiency measures. Energy efficiency remains a tremendous resource, especially on the commercial side, and is the most cost-effective way to meet our energy needs. Demand management and retrofitting are programs that create jobs and bring down costs to the consumer as it saves energy.  Expanding and building on MassSave incentives for energy efficiency can help us end up on the right side of the “bridge” to a clean energy future.

Thank you for fighting for us and our environment. The children thank you.

The Urgency of Now

Today’s Monday Action is to contact our Senator to propose legislation for a price on carbon now.
We draw inspiration today from Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s anti-Vietnam speech. His words, “The situation is one in which we must be ready to turn sharply from our present ways,” bring to mind our current emergency.

King speaks of, “a shift from a ‘thing-oriented’ society to a ‘person-oriented’ society,” and calls out for us to recognize when “a time comes when silence is betrayal” and urges that “Every man of humane convictions must decide on the protest that best suits his convictions, but we must all protest.”

We must all protest now too and so included in today’s Monday Action is a letter kit for you to share. Think of a new person to invite to meet and direct their elected officials through Monday Actions — they will thank you.

Dear Senator,
I am urgently concerned about climate change. This is the defining issue on which future generations will judge us. Therefore we need you to do all you can to get us a carbon fee and dividend with the fierce urgency of now.
I vote for a livable future, and that future must be carbon-neutral. I am not going away: I will repeat this ask until there is a true price on carbon.

Ask someone to join you in 2016:
Dear Friend/Mom, Dad, Sis, Bro, Cousin…,
I don’t now if you know this about me, but I am deeply concerned about climate change. I wasn’t sure what I could do to help until I found Monday Actions.
What are Monday Actions?– Every Monday I get an email which supplies me with all I need to contact one of my elected officials to urge bold action on climate change.This is my “Monday Action”.
It takes me less than 5 minutes: sometimes I just cut and paste from this handy “muffin mix” email put together by local Mothers Out Front volunteers, sometimes I use the email they send me to pick up the phone and call the suggested elected official, and once or twice I even spent time writing something personal directly to my elected representatives.
It’s been easy and heartening. By checking in with them week by week, I’m getting a better sense of what my elected officials do for me- and how much they need to hear from us, their voters. In fact, until I started Monday Actions I was a little vague on who actually represents me.
It’s embarrassing, but it actually turns out a lot of us don’t know or pay attention to who works for us and what they can do for us. Monday Actions are my civic nudge and I feel a lot more “civic-ally fit” now that I have been through a few of these seven week cycles- contacting the president on down to my state representative. I’ve even received grateful notes back directly from senators and representatives. We voters are the “lobbyist” they most want to hear from!
We know laws must be changed to protect our future. And if we speak up we can make that happen. So let’s act fast: if you join me, and your friends join you, we’ll get this done swiftly, in the next two election cycles. But we have to speak up, now.
Will you join me in Monday Actions? It’s always the same ask, but each Monday we will be more voices calling for a swift and just transition from fossil fuels.
Don’t despair, or drown out your fears, instead give it just 5 minutes a week and then bring a friend. You’ll love how fast this is going to turn around. I’m happy to forward you these helpful emails, or you can follow the Monday Action BLOG to receive email directly. You can personalize for your zip code- or ask me to help you! But please, start your week with the solution.
Thank you, you give me hope,

YOUR NAME

P.S. This grass-roots, all-volunteer effort needs a “counter” to show how many of us have done Monday Actions to date. Do you know how to make one? Let me know- We need to see this growing, because it is!

Families Walk the Walk on Proposed Pipeline

January 11th Action: Stop the Northeast Energy Direct Pipeline

Kinder Morgan wants to build a gas pipeline through the pristine Western Mass hills, farms, and forests.

For the sake of our children, grandchildren, nieces and nephews, we’re going to stop them and build solar and wind infrastructure instead.
Learn more about the Northeast Energy Direct Pipeline (NED) from Pipeline Awarness Network for the Northeast or No Fracked Gas in Mass.

There’s many ways to protest NED. You can get out in the streets, you can tell your representative in Congress you oppose it, or you can “intervene.” You pick, or do them all.

Want to exercise your leg muscles along with your civic muscles?

Here is a suggestion for what you can say:

Dear Congressman McGovern,

I oppose the proposed NED pipeline as a mother/grandmother/father/etc. deeply concerned about climate change. Please do all you can do to stop the building of new gas infrastructure and instead build renewable infrastructure in Massachusetts.

The Leverett Peace Pagoda is leading a 3-day protest walk during MLK weekend along the proposed pipeline route. Many of us will be walking on Sunday morning with Mothers Out Front. We are parents and grandparents, aunts and uncles, and others who refuse to leave the next generation anything but a clean, healthy environment. Please join the walk and/or make a statement that NED cannot lead to the future we want for our children and grandchildren.

Sincerely,

YOUR NAME
YOUR TOWN

Thanks for your good work. That’s all. That is, unless you want become an intervenor!

Last week we were up against a January 6th deadline for protesting NED through FERC. Within a day, your emails and calls paid off and Senator Rosenberg got FERC to extend the deadline! So you still have time before 5pm on January 15th to “intervene.” Sounds powerful doesn’t it? Well, it is, but it’s easy to do. You’ll want to take along these detailed instructions: http://www.nofrackedgasinma.org

Save Solar in MA, Stop the Pipeline

Happy 2016, the year voters halt climate chaos.
Today’s Action: Rescue Solar in MA

The solar industry is at risk in Massachusetts. Soon after the legislature returns on January 4, they are likely to vote on a bill that, as written, would severely limit solar’s growth. Contact your state senator (Rosenberg email) and state representative (Ellen Story email).

Dear [Legislator]:
I’m shocked and disappointed that the legislature is considering a bill that would severely limit the growth of solar energy in Massachusetts.

But it’s not too late to turn this ship around. I urge you to contact the conference committee (Reps Dempsey, Golden, and Brad Jones) to modify H.3854 to lift the existing caps!  This is the kind of leadership we need from you if we are to keep solar growing, and all the jobs and economic benefits that accompany the growth of this important industry.

Good Work- But, wait! All fired up? We need you for
This urgent
Pipeline, one-two punch:
A) contact your U.S. Representative asking for assistance intervening against the proposed NED pipeline with FERC.

Dear Representative McGovern,

I oppose new fossil fuel infrastructure. Many people recently tried to protest the unnecessary Northeast Direct (NED) pipeline through the appropriate federal online system (on FERC’s website) . They found the system was shutdown just before a January 6th deadline!

Please demand a two-week extension for people to file as intervenors on the NED proposal. Also please call for an investigation into why the system was shut down at all. Thank you.

B) Intervene!
Kinder Morgan REALLY does not want you to do this:
Got 15 minutes? Become an intervenor to stop the pipeline: Anyone can do it! Kids have done it. It’s free, easy, and no strings attached. The deadline right now is January 6th at 5pm.

What is important is that loads of us intervene, not that we say the perfect thing. Being an intervenor does not obligate you to file any additional comments or involve legal costs or obligations. Happy intervening!
Here’s your how-to link.

Use the following paragraph (or create your own list of interests that are compelling you to intervene):

I oppose the proposed pipeline: I object to it as an electric ratepayer, a taxpayer, a neighbor and visitor to protected public land in Massachusetts. It would imperil our food, water, and air.
I object to it as a person deeply concerned about climate change and the large-scale extraction, combustion and release of natural gas into the atmosphere, which directly affects all beings on this planet.

We are Paris

We mourn with our sisters and brothers in Paris. Thinking of the innocent lives lost, we hold the children we love closer, wishing we could protect them from every kind of terror, knowing this isn’t possible. We don’t know if our efforts to reduce the certain harm from climate disruption will affect the course of terrorism in our world. But we believe that when the delegates from all corners of the earth meet in Paris in two weeks, their resolve will be strengthened to protect their children’s children’s children from the danger they are charged with averting.

So, with hearts filled with empathy and determination, we turn to the work that we can do.

We can make a difference right here at home. Which of the following could you do more of?

  1. Pile on the sweaters and blankets and turn down the heat.
  2. Plug the cracks around the doors and put plastic sheeting over the windows.
  3. Buy less stuff and swap stuff more.
  4. Drive less, accelerate slower, and inflate the tires.
  5. Switch the Source Now in your home from the fossil fuels that the utility companies buy to clean, healthy electricity.

These are completely in our control. Let’s treat the energy we use as if we were taking it from the coming generations. Because that’s just what we’re doing as long as our energy comes from fossil fuels. Eversource and National Grid won’t switch from fossil fuels without a fight. Berkshire Gas and Kinder Morgan won’t stop lobbying for more pipelines. So let’s fight.
There’s several people in Boston who have been hearing a lot from the fossil fuel industry lately. They need to hear from you and your friends in their districts.  Look through your contact list, your facebook friends, your school reunion list. Who could you talk to about the need to switch our energy sources to renewables? Find someone in another part of the state. Convince them to contact their representative or one of the MA House of Representatives leaders below.

I want solar PV on every house, parking lot and business possible ASAP.

I want full Retail Net Metering credits for all residential solar pv systems.
I want full retail Virtual Net Metering for all community shared solar systems.
I want 20% solar energy by 2025 at the latest
I want energy storage for a resilient and stable grid.

Even if it costs me 50 cents on every electric bill.
