Gov Baker, Tell DEP to Serve the People

MOF_at_DEP.jpg
MOF protesting Weymouth, MA compressor station.

Here’s your Monday Action for the week of 5/29/17.

The Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) revealed that they routinely ask companies to edit draft permits.

It makes sense for the DEP to contact applicants to verify technical issues; however the DEP’s own regulations do not allow them to hand the draft to the company to alter in any way they choose.

We learned that DEP gave Spectra Energy the draft of their pollution permit for building a compressor station in Weymouth. Spectra edited the document in substantive ways that lowered the pollution standards they would have to meet, increasing the dangers to residents who live near gas infrastructure. Mothers Out Front and other pipeline opponents met with DEP when this news came out to demand the Baker administration revoke the air quality permit to protect the health and safety of the residents.

This week’s action is to demand that Governor Baker revoke the permit and put an end to this practice of turning a blind eye to a serious conflict of interest. You can use the sample words below as talking points or in an email. Make it personal.

See In Person Events below to join us in actions.


Dear Governor Baker,

I am urgently concerned about climate change. The children whose future I have promised to safeguard depend on me, on us, to swiftly, justly, and completely transition from fossil fuels to a clean energy economy.

Your DEP is allowing gas companies to edit drafts of permits which they have applied for. The DEP’s own regulations only allow the department to contact the applicant to verify that the permit is technically correct, not to hand them the permit to alter and edit out environmental standards they don’t like.

You are responsible for a fair and honest process and that didn’t happen here. Revoke the air pollution permit granted to Spectra for the Weymouth compressor station. Our children depend on your administration to ensure they have a safe and clean environment to grow up in.

Stop the unethical practice of letting gas companies rewrite draft permits behind the public’s back. Be a climate hero and stop allowing gas companies endanger our children’s health and future.

Thank you,

March, March Wherever You Are!

Womens_March_1-21-17_070.jpg

Monday Action for the week of 4/24/17:

Time to get out in the street!

Speak for the trees, the children of the world, and all the species we are privileged to live with on this beautiful Earth.

Today’s Monday Action is to prepare for the Climate March and let us know if you will join us on Saturday 4/29. RSVP for DCBostonSpringfield, or Greenfield
(There are seats remaining on a heavily-subsidized bus from Amherst Center and Holyoke to the People’s Climate March in DC. Amherst seats are $35 general/$15 student & low income. Holyoke seats are $30 general/$10 student & low income. Additional scholarships are available. Please help spread the word. Info here.)

Can’t march? Just respond to this email and tell us what your message would be and we’ll add it to a communal sign with all of your words!

See other local activities coming up here and below.

We were on the move this week:
Felicia giving Sec Beaton Lorax
Earth Week took Mothers Out Front to the Bridge of Flowers in Buckland/Shelburne Falls to welcome Secretary of Energy and Environmental Affairs Matthew Beaton. Over 50 sign carrying protestors showed up to remind him that Otis State Forest is protected and (to paraphrase a certain Springfield born author) “Unless Someone like him Cares a Whole Awful Lot, Nothing is Going to Get Better. It’s Not.” We all signed a copy of The Lorax and gave it to him after he spoke. He said he heard our message and would read the book to his children.
The Lorax 2
At the action in Buckland and at our next stop, the Amherst Sustainability Fair on Earth Day, our Lorax No Pipeline in Otis magnets were very popular. We’ll keep them on hand when we’re at events so come over and get one for yourself.

We saw many of you at the Sustainability Fair and lots of you signed a postcard to Governor Baker which we’ll hand deliver to him just before Mothers Day. Children made Climate Hero Shields, tossed corks into the gas leaks board, and listened to climate change inspired music. Check out facebook for more about the music. And here’s how the Gazette described our booth and the Climate Transformer.

Berkshire Gas, We Want Less Gas!

2016-02-15-greenfield-berkshire-gas-march-bridge-to-nowhere

Monday Action for the week of 4/17/17.

Last week FERC granted Kinder Morgan permission to start tree felling in Otis State Forest. They may not start today, but they will try to start soon. There are still ways to stop them, so we haven’t lost heart. [Speaking of heart, please join us in giving a hearty Stop the Pipeline welcome to the MA Secretary of Energy and Environment, in Shelburne Falls on Wednesday morning. See our special plan below or click here.]

So Climate Heroes, we may not have stopped the interstate pipeline from going through Otis yet, but there’s one very close to many of us that Western Mass reps can help with. If you don’t live in the Berkshire Gas service region, please forward this to a friend who does and help them make the call.

If you live in a community affected by the Berkshire Gas moratorium (towns from Amherst to Greenfield, and Whately) please call Senator Rosenberg and your State Representative urging that they support Montague and Deerfield’s action plan to end the moratorium without big new infrastructure!

You can use the text below as talking points when you call or copy-and-paste if you choose to email. Personalizing your message makes it count a lot more.


Dear [Senator Rosenberg or Representative NAME],

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 sources like solar and wind. We need to keep fossil fuels in the ground – including natural gas.

Berkshire Gas has proposed a solution to the moratorium on new hookups which they imposed on our town. Their solution would flood the valley with double the amount of gas currently used, building new, expensive infrastructure.

I hope you have seen the Action Plan to end the Berkshire Gas moratorium that Montague and Deerfield sent you last week. I urge you to fully support their recommendations which come from two expert witnesses. They show that a combination of system adjustments, demand management, more energy efficiency, and modest improvements to Berkshire’s infrastructure could end the moratorium quickly.

I urge you NOT to compromise with any Berkshire Gas proposal that would send more gas into our town than we need for local economic development as we transition to an economy powered by conservation and 100% renewable energy.

Thank you for serving our community and especially for your work on behalf of all our children and grandchildren whose future will depend on taking immediate action to reduce our dependence on fossil fuels.

Sincerely,

Governor, Protect Our Water!

10515261293_cf99b54108_bHere is your Monday Action for the week of 3/27/17:

Governor Baker has the ability to protect the water, the land, and the sacred places in Otis State Forest. 

The new Kinder Morgan/Tennessee gas pipeline through Otis State Forest is poised to begin construction. There’s not much time, but we can play a part.

Ask the Governor to deny the 401 Water Quality Certification to stop the Connecticut Expansion Project.
You can use the sample talking points or copy-and-paste text below, if you like. Calling shows you really mean it, but if you email, be sure to personalize it. Contact information is below.



Dear Governor Baker,

I am urgently concerned about climate change. This is the defining issue which future generations depend on us to solve. I urge you to be bold in fighting climate change and promoting clean energy for the health and safety of all our children.

You can stop the Connecticut Expansion Project by simply denying the 401 Water Quality Certification. This project is not yet under construction. The pipeline will significantly disrupt conservation land that the Massachusetts Constitution protects forever. The water of beautiful Spectacle Pond will be used to clean toxins out of the pipeline and will then be dumped downstream.

The fracked-gas to be carried in this pipeline will not even serve MA residents. The methane released by gas is a major Greenhouse Gas threatening our climate and our children’s future.

New York’s Governor Cuomo shut down the Constitution pipeline because it did not pass the 401 Water Quality Certification standards.

Protect our water, Governor!

This is something you can do and become a climate hero to all our children and grandchildren.

Sincerely,

Don’t Fight Climate Change Alone

Monday 11/14. The better climate candidate lost, and suddenly we face both tremendous danger and tremendous opportunity.
You’ll see two offerings to inspire you this week. The first one might be mostly for you, Dear Monday Actionist.

Today’s Monday Action: Write to President-Elect Trump
Please note: 1) Donald Trump does not use a computer. 2) We have a feel-good, click extra to Obama below. 3) Listed here too are lots of in-person events for you this week. You are not alone with this work.
_________________________________________________
VERSION A
Thank you, President-Elect Trump,
Your clarity woke me up. I am changed. From now on, every time I worry about climate change I will ask myself:

“What am I doing to save the world I love?” Then I’ll ask myself: “What more can I do to save the world I love?”

Then I will act.
This fills me with a great new hope, because
This, I can do.
And I know I am not alone.

I daresay most of us love this beautifully functioning, temperate world and do not want it to go off the rails –including you, you sly fox.

Sincerely,
YOUR NAME
YOUR TOWN AND STATE
With Mothers Out Front

——————————-
VERSION B
Dear President Elect Trump,
I was heartened by your acceptance speech when you said you would be president for all of us in the country. In that vein, I implore you to keep the Paris Climate Agreement. It represents the world coming together to protect what we all have in common. We have a limited time to protect the earth from irreversible damage. No country can do this alone. THERE IS NO PLANET B.

You are in a unique position. You are not beholden to special interests, like the fossil fuel industry. You can help prevent some of the problems that are becoming more and more evident as the earth warms, like flooding, droughts, new diseases, more and more displaced persons and more refugees.

Again, I implore you for the sake of our children and future generations to work with other world leaders to protect the earth.
THERE IS NO PLANET B.
Thank you.

Sincerely,

MA Senators: Turn the Tide with Energy Bill

Tell MA State Senators we won’t get another chance: We need you to create an Omnibus Energy Bill that will turn the tide of the climate crisis NOW.
————————————————–
Dear Senator,
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. We have to be bold and act fast.

Senator, we need you to work towards an Omnibus Energy Bill in the Senate that will turn the tide of the climate crisis! Massachusetts has 8000 megawatts of wind potential in the federal waters off our shores. That’s enough to power every home in the state. And just last week Secretary of State John Kerry announced that Boston will host a major climate summit in 2017. Let’s push ahead! There is no time to lose: It is imperative that we increase our commitment to offshore wind to at least 2000 megawatts; restore fair reimbursement rates to community and low-income solar; double the Renewable Energy Portfolio Standard (RPS); ensure environmental standards for large transmission projects, and most emphatically ban any form of pipeline tax.

Thank you for all you do, I know it’s not easy. We are counting on you to improve this key energy bill.

Here’s How the Children Thank You

Your Actions are part of what is stopping the pipelines! Good Work!

We are on a roll: Keep up the pressure, as we still need to prevent the expansion of Access Northeast, a natural gas project through the Eastern part of the state jointly proposed by Spectra Energy, Eversource Energy and National Grid.  We also need to make sure that the Kinder Morgan project is not just “suspended,” but cancelled.

Today’s Action:
Tell the MA legislature we want the new omnibus energy bill to prohibit public or electric ratepayer financing of new natural gas infrastructure.

And yes: Please, please send this to your friends all across the state. We need to enlist their help. The upcoming omnibus energy bill comes at a critical time for the planet and we need citizen input. You are the ones who can bring it by lighting up your networks: Ask at least one person to join you in Monday Actions: You can keep sharing this online petition. It directs to your personal state senators, state representatives and the Governor.

To help you think of friends in MA towns, we are including a Special List of the Legislators to contact who have not yet supported today’s ask.
————————————————–
Dear State Legislator,

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 want to see Massachusetts get 100% of its energy from clean, renewable sources like solar and wind.

I therefore need the new omnibus energy bill to prohibit public or electric ratepayer financing of new natural gas infrastructure.  The lack of certainty on this issue was explicitly cited by Kinder Morgan as a reason for suspending the project.

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