As always, we welcome you to the meeting, whether you have participated in the past or not. Join our discussion of climate and energy developments locally, across the state, and nationally. Learn about planned advocacy and protest actions organized by 350 Mass and other groups. Help to plan for events in our Greater Franklin region. If you have items you would like to announce or add to the agenda, please reply to our Node Co-coordinators, Carolyn Barthel ( and Ralph Halpern ( 

350 Mass and other climate organizations in the Mass Power Forward coalition are deciding on campaigns and legislative priorities for 2023-2024. At our Thursday meeting we will discuss the status of these deliberations.

On a related matter, Massachusetts should see progress on climate and energy policy with the change in the Governor's office. One department that must change is the Department of Public Utilities (DPU): for the last four years, the three Baker-appointed DPU Commissioners have acted as if protecting the natural gas industry and slow-walking the transition to renewable energy is their most important job. We are asking incoming Governor Maura Healey to establish DPU leadership that works FOR the ratepayers to reduce energy costs instead of those who have been in sync with the utilities working AGAINST ratepayers!

The Climate Courage Working Group of 350 MA is calling for a rally and march against the actions of the Massachusetts Department of Public Utilities (DPU). The march will be SATURDAY, December 10 from 12 noon to 1:30 p.m. in Dewey Square across from South Station in Boston. We encourage you to join us there. Information and registration here.

We hope you receive 350 Mass' Climate Weekly email. It's a good way to keep up with key issues and actions on their behalf. You can sign up here.

We will send a reminder about the Node's meeting on Thursday. 

Thank you.
