350 Mass Greater Franklin Node. Next Meeting: 
Thursday, January 20, 7:00 PM.

Hello to all once again from the 350 Mass Greater Franklin Node. Please mark your calendars for this week's Node meetingThursday, January 20, 7:00-9:00 PM. (We have a lot to discuss, but feel free to leave early if necessary.)

We welcome you to join us, whether or not you've attended previous meetings. We will review the status of climate bills at the State House and the actions we need to be taking. Here is the summary (with links) as sent out in the recent "Climate Weekly" email from Sam Payne at 350 Mass.

In order for climate bills to succeed in 2022, they must be reported favorably out of committee by February 3. With a record number of environmentally focused bills in this legislative session, we need to be clear and adamant about our priorities. Among the bills we are prioritizing in our legislative agenda are the Building justice with jobs bill, the Future of heat bill, and our first independently written bill, An Act relative to retiring high emissions vehicles. To learn how to lobby in favor of these bills, join our Lobbying Training webinar January 23, led by 350 Mass' very own Cabell Eames. 

Many of the bills we are prioritizing are centered around housing. Why? Roughly 40% of emissions in Massachusetts come from buildings, and housing closely ties environmental action with the related struggles of equity and justice. 350 Mass' current statewide campaign is Bringing the Green New Deal Home. Our Housing Working Group is running two actions next week (Monday 1/17 at 7 pm and Tuesday 1/18 TODAY! at 4 pm) to train you to lobby for our priority bills in anticipation of Mass Power Forward Lobby Week January 24-28.

We need to take action and keep up the pressure on elected officials in Washington and Boston, and on banks and insurers who enable fossil fuel infrastructure. We'll also continue our discussion about local activities and opportunities to engage town officials and residents.

If you'd like to chat or meet with one of us, please reply to this email and we will find a time to explore with you how you can get involved in our multi-faceted organization. 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. 

Visit the 350 Mass website to learn about opportunities to add your voice for a just transition for a climate-safe world.  Sign up for updates. 

We'll send a meeting reminder on Thursday. Thanks for your participation and support.

Franklin residents: ACTION ALERT to support Franklin Net Zero emissions goal

Hey, Franklin residents!

An exciting opportunity for local action to help advance Franklin's climate goals from the comfort of your own home!

This Wednesday, January 19 at 7:00 PM the Franklin Town Council will be voting to adopt the 2022/2023 Town Goals. Thanks to Cobi Frongillo, a Town Councilorthe following language in red has been included within the 'General Government' section:
"Continue to implement “Green Community” goals through the state approved Energy Reduction Plan. As part of the Green Community goals in 2022-2023, the Town will work with the state to investigate how a Net Zero emissions plan could be incorporated."

This is a major win for advocates of climate action! I ask that if you can, please attend the meeting to voice support for this goal!

Energy efficiency and retrofitting homes and buildings. All of 350 Mass' nodes are working hard to promote and achieve the organization's priorities, as defined in our Campaign "Bringing the Green New Deal Home" and its three components focused on Buildings, Transportation, and Energy. At this meeting we will focus on the first component, "Building the Green New Deal," that is, requiring that new buildings be efficient and non-emitting, and retrofitting existing buildings, including insulation, energy-efficient appliances, and replacing fossil-fuel heating systems with non-polluting (electric) ones. These changes will occur via legislation, individual consumer choices, and policies and programs adopted by cities and towns. This will be an all-hands-on-deck effort. We ask you to join the Zoom meeting to learn about the campaign, share information about groups and activities in your community, and help us plan and implement this campaign. Also, we ask your help in publicizing this important meeting and inviting others. Thank you.

Next Generation Roadmap Climate Law.  In January, 2021 the Massachusetts Legislature passed the Next Generation Roadmap Climate Law requiring the elimination of greenhouse gas emissions. One key to success is to write new building codes and retrofit at least one million homes by 2030, as described in our Campaign (above). Priority would be given to low-income households and environmental justice neighborhoods. Regrettably, progress has been slow. It is clear that Mass Save, the agency currently responsible for these types of home improvement programs, needs to expand its scope beyond insulation and energy-efficient supplies to provide a roadmap that homeowners can use to electrify our homes with renewable energy at a cost we can afford. Add your voice to demand action. Sign the "Times Up For Fossil Fuels!" Card. Help pressure the utilities that run Mass Save to obey the law, and support the call for additional laws and programs to meet the state's climate goals.   
 
Massachusetts legislative action. The House and Senate committees are actively reviewing the many bills proposed for the current 2021-22 session. This is a critical time to support 350 Mass' top three priority bills (click for descriptions). We are asking everyone to contact your legislators via phone or email or, preferably, with a meeting in January, to encourage them to cosponsor these bills. For constituents of Rep. Jeff Roy (Democrat, Franklin, and Chairperson, Joint Committee on Telecommunications, Utilities and Energy), the Node is working on setting up a meeting with him; if you'd like to participate, let us know by replying to this email. If you'd like to learn about all the bills that we support, you can find information sheets here.   

We hope you can join us Thursday at 7:00. We'll send a reminder Thursday afternoon. 
 
Thank you for your commitment to the struggle for a transition to a just, equitable, and clean energy economy.

Actions you can take BEFORE THURSDAY'S MEETING:
Massachusetts Action: The House and Senate committees are actively reviewing the many bills proposed for the current 2021-22 session. This is a critical time to support 350 Mass' top three priority bills. We are asking everyone to contact your legislators via phone or email or, preferably, with a meeting between now and early January, to encourage them to cosponsor these bills.

If you'd like to learn about all the bills that we support, you can find information sheets here.   

National Action: President Biden went ahead with the largest offshore drilling lease sale in US history, auctioning off millions of acres in the Gulf of Mexico to Big Oil, even though they were not legally required to do so. Read about it here. But there's still time to act. Call 866-834-8040 as soon as possible and demand that the Department of the Interior stop the sale!  Learn about the organized opposition here.

Your Input Needed: A Brief Survey from the Greater Franklin Node of 350 Mass


Happy Holiday Season from the Greater Franklin Node of 350 Mass.

We are asking you and everyone on our email distribution list to complete a brief survey to indicate your interest in participating in our meetings and activities, regardless of your past engagement.

The Greater Franklin Node includes residents of close to 20 communities, from Sharon and Walpole, through Foxboro and Franklin, south to Attleboro, and west to Blackstone and Millville.  We meet on the 1st and 3rd Thursdays of the month (currently via Zoom). We engage in local and statewide activities to promote positive and effective responses to the climate crisis and to transform our energy system from fossil fuels to renewable sources. Our strategies align with the statewide member-led 350 Mass organization; campaigns address legislation, education, consumer choices and community programs, and protests against institutions and corporations that enable the status quo to continue.

In these critical times, all of us are called upon to raise our voices. Whether you are a veteran or a newcomer to political action, you can make a contribution. Your responses to this brief (5-minute) survey will help our Node serve as an effective force to secure the best possible future for all of us. We will also use your information to update our contact list and improve future communications. 

Please try to complete this survey by Wednesday, November 23rd. Thank you.
Here is the link to the survey.

If you have questions or comments, please reply to this email.

Our agenda will cover developments and actions in Massachusetts, nationwide, and globally, including legislation and the ongoing efforts to transition from fossil fuels to renewable sources of energy.  We welcome you to join us, whether or not you've attended previous meetings. We need to take action and keep up the pressure on elected officials in Washington and Boston, and on banks and insurers who enable fossil fuel infrastructure. We'll discuss opportunities to learn about the climate crisis and strategies by reading and watching webinars, and to make our voices heard, collectively and individually.  
 
If you'd like to chat or meet with one of us, please reply to this email and we will find a time to explore with you how you can get involved in our multi-faceted organization. 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. 

Visit the 350 Mass website to learn about opportunities to add your voice for a just transition for a climate-safe world. SIgn up for updates. 
 
Here is today's message from our organization: Thousands have mobilized in DC and across the country to demand we recognize climate as the emergency it is. Please join us in urging @POTUS to declare a #ClimateEmergency & #BuildBackFossilFree . We can't afford to compromise on our future. Call the White House today 888-724-8946.
 
We'll send a meeting reminder on Thursday. Thanks for your participation and support.
