Janet Lawson signed Sign the Petition to Save Cape Wind 2015-02-25 17:53:06 -0500Is business paying attention to what the costs of climate change will be? We need to get this under control now by proceeding with the switch to renewables.
Marcy Reed, the president of National Grid in MA, has been a long-term and enthusiastic supporter of offshore wind. Now, the fate of the nation's first offshore wind farm lies in her hands. By reinstating National’s Grid commitment to buy 50% of the power from Cape Wind, she can save the nation’s first offshore wind farm, help create thousands of jobs, and move toward securing Massachusetts’ clean energy future.4,036 signatures
Dear Marcy Reed, President of National Grid in Massachusetts,
We need National Grid to be a leader to help Massachusetts transition from fossil fuels to alternatives like wind.
Massachusetts cannot afford the cost of continuing to dump pollution recklessly into the atmosphere. Rising global temperatures disrupt the livelihoods, and lives, of everyone. Climate change is having serious effects here in Massachusetts, including more frequent and severe storms and especially rising sea levels.
Adding gas pipelines only increases our dependence on fossil fuels. We need wind turbines, not gas pipelines, to move Massachusetts toward a clean energy economy. The Cape Wind project, in particular, is a vital step toward a sustainable future, and its fate is in your hands.
Please redouble your efforts to move away from fossil fuels by renewing your commitment to the Cape Wind project and by pledging your support for future wind energy projects.
