If you make hydrogen from natural gas, it is dirty because of all the CO2 emissions from the conversion process. At both the Federal and Massachusetts level, policies push to support use of dirty hydrogen for home heating. We talk to two experts, who say this is just a way to keep utilities in business and that it is is both dangerous and polluting. They propose a different path to achieve the goal of sustainable home heating for all.

Because we recognize the necessity of personal accountability for our actions, because we accept responsibility for a building a durable future and because we believe it is our patriotic duty as citizens to speak out, we must insist the United States transform it’s energy sector, over the next decade, under a just and equitable plan, that uses regulations, investments and a price on carbon to safeguard our collective future.
