RSVP for 10/27 Legislative Hearing on Carbon Pricing!

unnamed_(22).jpgMassachusetts has the chance to make history by becoming the first state to put a price on carbon. The world's leading economists agree that the single best way to tackle climate change is by forcing big polluters to pay for the carbon emissions that they put into the atmosphere. By putting a price on carbon, we can blaze a trail forward for other states and countries to follow and show our nation and our world what true climate leadership looks like.

On Tuesday, October 27, the Massachusetts Telecommunications, Utilities and Energy Committee is holding a hearing on two bills that would price carbon. We need to pack the room and show that the people of Massachusetts are eager for visionary leadership on climate! 

We're expecting this to be a long hearing covering many bills, so we'll use some of the time to make visits to our representatives in the State House -- please RSVP so that we can prepare accordingly!

If you can, please write a few brief paragraphs of testimony about why you support carbon pricing and send it to Andrew Gordon, andrew@betterfutureproject.org, before Monday, October 26. We'll all deliver our testimony to the committee chairs together before the hearing begins! You can see sample talking points and sample testimony here.

October 27, 2015 at 12pm - 3pm
WHERE
Massachusetts State House, 24 Beacon St, Boston (meet at the State House steps at noon; the hearing itself is in Room B1 starting at 1 pm)
