Climate and biodiversity crises are real and are scary!
Massachusetts is on the right track but to achieve the goals, we must support it with individual actions. These actions do not involve self-sacrifice. In fact, they will save money, create jobs, and make our state more beautiful.
1. Support nature
MA’s Climate Action Plan relies on nature to reduce our annual carbon emission by 20% each year. Nature also supports all life on earth including us humans.

2. Decarbonize everything -- and save money
Decarbonization calls us to use less, be more efficient, and stop using fossil fuels by switching to electricity that is made from zero-carbon renewable sources such as wind, solar, geothermal, and water and more.
