Petition to the Massachusetts Legislature

To ensure a secure green future for ourselves and our children, we instruct our elected officials to support legislation that would:

  1. reduce greenhouse gas emissions in Massachusetts by 80% by 2020, and
  2. phase out tax incentives for energy-intensive projects while expanding job creation programs for locally-owned businesses and cooperatives involved in renewable energy, conservation, and sustainable agriculture.

1 Eli Beckerman Cambridge, MA We must act NOW for a secure green future for people and the planet!
2 Magdalena Hoersch Arlington We need to scramble back to 350ppm CO2 ASAP, and this is a bold and necessary step that will have far reaching benefits beyond the climate.
3 Lawrence Fine Brookline / Hudson, MA Consumption be done! Curtailment, conservation, tearing down the rotting status quo ( it seems to be crumbling on its own ) and converting it to the compost that will nourish the growth of a relocalized, organic, healthy community.

9 Jaime DeSousa Woburn It is time for people to stop thinking so selfishly and to open up and embrace selflessness. Take a step back and look at the bigger picture. And to realize this is not something we should think about considering, it is something that should have already been mandated, a no brainer. We have everything to lose, and yet at the end of the day, we still can’t eat money.
10 Gabriana DeSousa Woburn How about 100% clean renewable energy by 2018? And on top of that 5 million new green jobs! That sounds even better to me! :)
11 Sasha A. Macko Williamstown Climate change is the most important issue we face today and action must be taken now. Massachusettes should rise to the challenge and become a leader in creating an economically and environmentally stable future for our children and generations to come.
12 David Emmerman Amherst It is time for the legislature to stop serving Big Oil. We demand a revolution. We demand an end to fossil fuel incentives, and investment in the sustainable technology of the future. The consequences of inaction are too dire — Massachusetts must lead the country in legislating revolutionary solutions to artificial climate change.

53 Linda O’Dea Plainfield We are quite discouraged by the apparent lack of interest in energy-efficient vehicles by most auto companies. Our current vehicles get 33 and 54 MPG, and the newer versions of the same vehicles are pitifully less.

76 Patrick Michaelan Roslindale Legislation of this order, must be on the books in the State of Massachusetts, having taken account of all stakeholders (i.e. businesses, citizens, NGOs, and government at all levels). Massachusetts has been a leader in so many important initiatives, and this may be the largest opportunity for Mass. to stake its claim as a leading, progressive, and innovative state in the Nation.

78 Allison Friedman Weston, MA Let me know how I can help. I run a national start-up green building web site called Rate It Green ( This spring, we will introduce more regional areas of the site for discussions, etc. I am happy to provide any space needed. People would need to become members to post, but it’s free. And our member survey will be a lot shorter by then… :) We need to get very specific as to what we mean y going more green – industry by industry – and for consumers as well. My passion is green building professionally, but we have to look at every commercial aspect and then ask what we all have to do at home as well. Count me in! But we have a lot more educating to do. I was DRVING to my recyclign center until a new company came recently to offer curbside pick up – think of that. My gas was likely negating the effect of out recycling. We’ve got a lot of work to do!

This revenue could be used to subsidize people with loans for specific energy reduction efforts such as home heating, insulation, even for purchase of energy efficient vehicles.

147 Jeff Tamsin Westfield
148 Sarah Mills and family milton ma There is no time to lose, we must learn from our mistakes and make cleaner, healthier choices for ourselves and the planet. Energy conservation is the cheapest and ‘easiest’ piece of the solution and green energy is another. We also need to start to differentiate between ‘needs’ and ‘wants’. A culture of materialism encourages us to confuse the two…
