    New England Aquarium Fossil Fuel Divestment Petition

    830 signatures

    The New England Aquarium is a vital institution in our community that works to educate the public about climate change and its impacts. As patrons of the New England Aquarium, we are proud of its strong commitment to combating climate change. We encourage the aquarium to take the next step as a role model by becoming the first aquarium in the world to divest from fossil fuels

    The fossil fuel divestment movement has grown rapidly over the last five years to undermine the destructive influence of the fossil fuel industry, which disproportionately burdens the health, livelihoods, and lifespans of people of color and low-income people. Through divesting, the aquarium will further its mission to support the community, to act as a leader, and to create a sustainable blue planet for all people and marine wildlife.

    By signing this petition, I support the New England Aquarium’s Board of Trustees in divesting from the fossil fuel industry so that the aquarium can continue to be a role model for other local institutions that are committed to serving the public and the environment.

    Sign the Petition to Save Cape Wind!

    marcy_reed_v2.jpgMarcy Reed, the president of National Grid in MA, has been a long-term and enthusiastic supporter of offshore wind. Now, the fate of the nation's first offshore wind farm lies in her hands.  By reinstating National’s Grid commitment to buy 50% of the power from Cape Wind, she can save the nation’s first offshore wind farm, help create thousands of jobs, and move toward securing Massachusetts’ clean energy future.

    Dear Marcy Reed, President of National Grid in Massachusetts,

    We need National Grid to be a leader to help Massachusetts transition from fossil fuels to alternatives like wind.

    Massachusetts cannot afford the cost of continuing to dump pollution recklessly into the atmosphere. Rising global temperatures disrupt the livelihoods, and lives, of everyone. Climate change is having serious effects here in Massachusetts, including more frequent and severe storms and especially rising sea levels.

    Adding gas pipelines only increases our dependence on fossil fuels.  We need wind turbines, not gas pipelines, to move Massachusetts toward a clean energy economy. The Cape Wind project, in particular, is a vital step toward a sustainable future, and its fate is in your hands. 

    Please redouble your efforts to move away from fossil fuels by renewing your commitment to the Cape Wind project and by pledging your support for future wind energy projects.

    Sincerely yours,
