Rep Joan Meschino of Hull will discuss her road map 2050 bill to avoid climate catastrophe by providing a new target of zero emissions. The bill resets the state's 2050 target to net zero and commits the state agencies to making a comprehensive and detailed plan for how to build a clean economy.
Rep Marjorie Decker of Cambridge has sponsored the 100% clean energy for all bill. There are no insurmountable technical or economic barriers to achieving clean energy for all and Massachusetts to lead the way.
Rep Jennifer Benson of Lunenburg is the lead house sponsor of the bill to put a price on carbon from the heating and transportation sectors. As a Commonwealth, we have placed a significant focus on cutting our climate change-causing pollution from electricity, but we now need to have a comprehensive approach to other areas of our lives.
