Aid said, “I cannot speak for the Governor” when asked why Charlie did not sign the letter. Asked him to pass my message along.
Urge Governor Baker to release a clean energy roadmap for Massachusetts.
On June 1, President Trump abandoned our nation’s responsibility to participate in the global response to the climate crisis. Two days later, after receiving hundreds of constituent phone calls, Gov. Baker signed Massachusetts on to the US Climate Alliance, a coalition of states pledging to uphold the Paris Agreement at the state level.
The next step is for Baker to release a roadmap to get Massachusetts back on track to meet or exceed the 25% carbon reduction by 2020 required by state law, which is necessary for our state to do its part in to meet the carbon reduction targets stipulated in the Paris Agreement.
Please take two minutes to call Governor Baker at 617-725-4005. Use these talking points or your own words (it counts to leave a message):
[Introduce yourself and provide your address.]
I am calling to thank Gov. Baker for adding Massachusetts to the US Climate Alliance and to urge him to release a roadmap to get Massachusetts back on track to meet 25% carbon reduction by 2020 as required by Massachusetts law.
Do you know when Gov. Baker plans to release his specific plans to meet this mandated carbon reduction target?
[Don't forget to thank the staff person for her or his time!]
For the latest on the #StandUpCharlie initiative, please visit 350 Massachusetts.
