Help us urge Governor Baker to pursue a clean energy future

The StopNED Coalition’s Alternative Solutions Team has launched a petition to Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker urging him to implement key policies regarding energy policy, natural gas, and 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.

The governor will meet with the other five New England governors at the end of March or in early April with the stated intention of coming up with a joint plan to bring more gas pipelines into the Commonwealth and the region. [1]

The petition was developed 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!
