More Clean Energy

Dear Governor Baker,

Massachusetts has enormous potential for renewable energy and energy efficiency. More local and renewable energy, including solar and offshore wind, is good for the air we breathe and for the climate as well as being good for the economy and for job growth. And of course the cheapest energy is the energy we don't use in the first place - energy efficiency saves towns and cities and homeowners money.

The renewable energy and energy efficiency industries  created almost 90,000 jobs in Massachusetts alone, and can continue to grow if we put it on a level playing field with dirty energy. That is why I am writing to encourage you to invest in a clean and growing industry rather than an outdated one that pollutes our air and water.

Massachusetts and New England are at an energy crossroads. We need to move towards the clean energy future - we the people want better air quality and a healthier environment for now and for generations to come, with more local clean energy and more efficient homes and buildings. 

That is why we are asking you, our governor, to prioritize renewable sources like offshore winds and solar. It is up to you to lead us to a greener future.

Sincerely,

    Massachusetts could be the clean energy titan of the future. We need to seize this economic opportunity while simultaneously protecting our children’s future.

    Please, let’s think of the long term. Yes, it may be more expensive in the short term to forego the so-called cheaper tracked gas, but it will be far more expensive in the long term if we do not make a BIG push for renewables now. For too long we’ve been the grasshopper, time to be the ants!

    Dear Govenor Baker,

    I’m sure you get this issue. It’ s just a question of when, right? Best science says there’s a point of no return up ahead. More and more people are realizing that renewables aren’t radical, they’real reasonable.

    THANK YOU!!

    Paul

    We’re running out of time on climate change. Please prioritise solar, hydro, and heat pumps, not nuclear, and not fracking.
