In Massachusetts, the Pilgrim Nuclear Power Station will shutter in 2019, depriving the state of a big chuck on carbon-free energy. What should be done to fill the gap? Build more pipelines for carbon polluting natural gas? Import out-of-state power from Hydro-Quebec? Or build a green energy infrastructure right at home? This is a moment where great things can be done, if our leaders hear the call. We discuss.
The reading list:
- Pilgrim to close
- The race to replace
- Should we return to overdependence on a single fuel?
- Clean energy is the answer
- D.R. Tucker's call for vision

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.
