Environmental Justice at risk in East Boston: The Climate Minute

Environmental justice is at stake in the historic community of East Boston. Eversource is trying to build an electrical substation (read: “unnecessary fossil fuel infrastructure”) in a community already heavily burdened by industrial facilities and the support of Logan airport. We speak with two activists from GreenRoots to better understand the issues. You can take action on March 11 by attending a meeting with the EFSB at East Boston High School. Listen in.

The reading list

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.

Thanks for listening.

…Ted McIntyre
