Carbon emissions from Massachusetts’ transportation sector are the next big frontier of climate work in the state. The Governor is searching for ways to finance these efforts and a multi-state effort (called the TCI, for Transportation and Climate Initiative) seems like a good path. At the same time, while his Secretary of Energy and Environmental Affairs has moved to work with a pipeline company, the incoming Secretary tweets as “@ClimateKatie”.
The reading list:
- Commonwealth Magazine on Gov Baker's TCI efforts
- Matt Beaton leaves to join the pipeline industry
- The new Secretary is Kathleen Theoharides
- MASSLive on Theoharides
- CityScape on Transportation
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.
