CLEAN ENERGY PETITION TO GOVERNOR BAKER
Everyone, please sign this ASAP!
Urge Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker to implement key policies regarding energy policy, natural gas, and slowing climate change.
Governor Baker is aggressively promoting natural-gas pipeline expansion for Massachusetts and New England. He is also championing statewide or regional tariffs on electric ratepayers to pay for new gas infrastructure. [Links to news coverage at the end of this post.]
This petition was developed by a working group including members of Pioneer Valley CAN and the StopNED Coalition, to send a message to the governor that citizens want and need policies that exclude greater use of natural gas or any fossil fuels. Any person or group who supports the goals in the petition is invited to circulate it. Please share widely!
