EASTHAMPTON folks!! An Easthampton working group is forming. Tonight is the first meeting.

We are in the midst of a climate emergency and we must act!

We invite you to join us in developing an Easthampton working group dedicated to raising climate change awareness, promoting available strategies to reduce methane and carbon emissions (e.g., energy efficiency, conservation, and the conversion of all residences and buildings to efficient and sustainable heating and cooling methods), and resisting the development of new, unnecessary, and expensive gas pipeline infrastructure.

An immediate threat to our community is the Columbia Gas Reliability Project. With an estimated cost of $24 million (paid for by ratepayers), it would bring more gas, much of it fracked, to the Connecticut River Valley. This would result in increased gas-burning, heightened carbon and methane emissions, and worsening air pollution. Huge investment in new, expensive gas pipeline infrastructure is a dangerous and outdated answer to meeting our energy needs. Cities and towns near Easthampton are mobilizing to end gas pipeline infrastructure expansion while calling for repair of existing leak-prone pipes. The recent explosions and fires in Lawrence, Andover, and North Andover make this effort all the more compelling.

Please come to our first organizing meeting to discuss what actions we can take in Easthampton to prevent catastrophic climate disruption. RSVP - conniedaw@gmail.com
