"The Sugar Shack Alliance claims Republican Governor Charlie Baker, regulating agencies, state police, and courts “worked to protect corporate interests at the expense of the safety, health, environment, civil rights, and future well-being” of residents."
From the consultants who concluded New England doesn't need more pipeline capacity to keep the lights on at a reasonable cost -- guess what? They conclude that FERC's 1999 pipeline certification policy on assessing need & balancing interests should be updated.
Our Governor, Charlie, Baker signed Massachusetts up for the Climate Alliance of 15 states in June, but his policies regarding new gas pipelines and the pipeline tax are incompatible with that gesture. We simply can not build new pipelines that lock us into the Trump Dirty Power Plan for 30 years and at the same time say that we are doing our part to fix climate breakdown.
We're angry but filled with hope due to the growing people's movements. We know that the more people complain about dangerous Trump Dirty Power Plan, the more legislators will take notice. We need to remind everyone that we are not going away. We are not going to let them quietly engage in this wanton intergenerational theft and disregard of people's health and safety.
We are RECLAIMING OUR FUTURE. There is no planet B. Action is necessary.
