Our agenda will cover developments and actions in Massachusetts and nationwide, including legislation and the ongoing efforts to transition from fossil fuels to renewable sources of energy.
We will also devote part of the meeting to the issue of carbon pricing. Come learn about carbon pricing as a means to move Massachusetts to a more sustainable economy! Kevin O'Reilly, a 350 Mass North Shore member and Citizens Climate Lobby member, will give a presentation on carbon pricing, followed by a question and answer period. 350 Mass supported carbon pricing as an important legislative priority for years; however, during this current legislative session, while still supportive of the policy, 350 Mass is focusing on other bills. But perhaps the time is right for this legislation! In any case, we need to be aware of all the tools in the toolbox to deal with climate change.
If you'd like to understand more before he presents or can't make the meeting, you can read about carbon pricing here, and check out this report:
Our usual meeting is 7:00-9:00. Kevin will present beginning at 7:30.
Our Greater Franklin Node wants to collaborate with groups and individuals from the region who share the same concerns, so all our cities and towns can benefit. Please join us to learn and contribute.
If you cannot participate in the Node meeting on Thursday but have some information to share, e.g., notice about a community meeting or a recommended webinar, you can send it to email@example.com.
We'll send a reminder on Thursday.
Thanks for your participation and support.
