The Massachusetts Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs (EEA) is developing the Massachusetts Decarbonization Roadmap to 2050. Public engagement is an important component in the development of this roadmap, and EEA is looking for feedback.
Several public meetings were planned through March, 2020, but out of precaution for COVID-19, most of the meetings were canceled. On March 27th, they held a public webinar. (You can see this presentation on YouTube here, or see the slides here.)
Sustainable Wellesley is concerned that, although the goal of 100% Net Zero by 2050 is a good one, we need to move to that goal more quickly, with a reduction of 60% by 2030. To do that we must prohibit all greenhouse gas producing combustion (including biomass), and we must address environmental justice issues with carbon pricing. We are looking for a climate plan that requires the elimination of all greenhouse gas pollution from the economy by 2050, with a reduction of 60% by 2030.
We encourage you to participate by watching the webinar, then dropping a note using the EEA Feedback Form, or sign on to this letter (provided by our affiliate, Mass Power Forward) concerning the 2050 Roadmap here.
Deadline is 4/10 by 5:00 pm
