Letter: Massachusetts State House, Office of the Governor, Room 280, Boston, MA 02133
Dear Governor Baker,
I am urgently concerned about climate change. I vote for those who do the most to protect us from climate change. Will you be one of them come November?
We need you to get behind Carbon Pricing, just like the Senate did last Thursday* because our system rewards polluters and that’s not good for the children we love. I disagree with what you have said previously: energy isNOT a combo-platter, because natural gas, coal and oil are too deadly a diet for life on earth.
It’s time to do the right thing. Thank you.

That was your Monday Action, good job!
*Last Thursday the MA Senate passed a clean energy bill with many good features by a vote of 35-0. It includes a requirement to implement a market-based mechanism with carbon pricing for transportation by the end of 2020, for commercial and industrial buildings and processes by the end of 2021, and for residences by the end of 2022. The Senate became the first state chamber in the country to pass carbon pricing.
