There are many things you can help Massachusetts get done.

1. Fund Mass Transit – Call on Gov. Patrick and our legislature to fund mass transit. We need a 21st century transit system to build our economy and reduce carbon pollution at the same time!

☀ Visit t4ma.org.

2. Call Governor Patrick immediately and ask him to lower the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI) Cap. Current emissions are at roughly 91 million tons, yet discussion is underway to raise the cap to 97-106 million tons. DEMAND THAT THE CAP BE LOWERED AT LEAST BACK TO 91 MILLION TONS, or, better yet, to reflect a 25% reduction: 68 million tons. 617.725.4005 www.mass.gov/governor

3. In addition, tell Governor Patrick to enforce the Global Warming Solutions Act (GWSA), particularly Section 3D. The GWSA mandates a 25% reduction in greehouse gasses by 2020 and 80% by 2050, with required regulations setting declining annual emissions for all sectors. TELL GOVERNOR PATRICK TO ENFORCE THE LAW!

4. Call State Senator Mike Barrett and Representative Tom Conroy of Concord-Carlisle to thank them for their recent legislation mandating a carbon tax. Ask how you can support his efforts.

5. Consider joining a group such as Citizens Climate Lobby, which is currently researching the feasibility of putting an initiative on the ballot for a statewide carbon tax.
