The Massachusetts Senate passed an Omnibus Energy bill that mandates 2GW of wind power, increases the use of renewables by 2% a year and bans the ‘pipeline tax.’ This is good news! Next comes joint work between the House and Senate to reconcile the two different versions of the bill passed by each body. Climate Hawks should urge their legislators to put the Senate’s vision into the final bill.
The reading list:
- The Senate's bill is more 'aggressive' than the House version
- The Senate version bans the pipeline tax
- USVI pulls Exxon Subpoena
- Is Exxon sincere in supporting a carbon tax?

Because we recognize the necessity of personal accountability for our actions, because we accept responsibility for building a durable future and because we believe it is our patriotic duty as citizens to speak out, we must insist that the United States put a price on carbon.
Thanks for listening.
