Yesterday Trump announced his plan to rollback federal auto emissions and today he slashed the EPA, NOAA and NASA budgets. This is the moment for state leaders to stand up for sensible climate policy and our livable climate future.
But since Trump's election, Gov. Baker has played it safe by staying silent. Baker must denounce climate-disrupting policies and put Massachusetts back on track to meet our state's legal requirement to cut carbon pollution. Under Baker’s leadership, we’re falling behind.
