Sign this Cape Wind Petition

Monday Action:  February 9, 2015

This week, let’s add our voices to support 468 MegaWatts of wind power!

Click here for the Better Future Project Cape Wind Petition

Our January 12th Monday Action was to call National Grid and/or NStar to find out why they pulled out of their contract to collectively fund 77% of this project. Many had engaging conversations (after getting through to media liaisons) and we believe this will absolutely help these utilities – or “LDC’s, Local Direct Customers funding the Tennessee Gas Pipeline we don’t want – choose the renewable energy route that will ensure a livable future for our children.

Now we have a petition to sign and a rally to attend on the Boston Common, February 28th from 1-3!


Thank you!

An Act Combating Climate Change

Monday Action:  January 26, 2015

This week we ask you to help gather political support for a new bill in the MA Statehouse called “An Act Combating Climate Change.” The bill will place fees on fossil fuel emissions and rebate the money to MA residents and employers. Studies show the bill will combat climate change, advance clean energy, and strengthen the economy. Learn more about the bill here or visit Climate-XChange.org, who we thank for this week’s action idea!

 

ACTION: Ask your State Representative and Senator to support and cosponsor this bill. Luckily, ClimateXChange has done most of the work for you.

Just click here or copy this link into your browser:

January 30th is our deadline to get as many sponsors as possible, so your message right now could have a huge impact. Please share this email with friends in other parts of Massachusetts.

If your rep and senator are Ellen Story and Stan Rosenberg, who already support the bill, you can send a version of this:

Thank you for supporting a carbon fee and rebate bill for Massachusetts. I’m deeply concerned about climate change, for the sake of my children and grandchildren. It’s time for bold action to reduce our use of fossil fuels and it makes sense to make the polluters pay. I hope that you’ll help convince your peers to cosponsor and support this bill and help speed it through the legislative process.”
