Climate change is impacting us. And it’s not good. Pollution from power plants and other sources is affecting our food, our air, and our water. It’s super-sizing things like hurricanes and droughts. If we don’t take action, it’s only going to get worse.
It is clear to everyone that it’s time for bold, ambitious climate action and the Massachusetts Legislature has a lot of options to choose from.
The Massachusetts State Senate introduced then passed three climate bills at a breakneck speed that laid out broad new commitments to tackle carbon pollution emissions in a variety of ways.
To stave off the worst effects of the climate crisis, the global and U.S. economies need to decarbonize as fast as possible. Capturing carbon emissions from industrial sources and pulling carbon out of the air via direct air capture are technologies we will likely need in our toolbox if we are to achieve net zero or negative greenhouse gas emissions.
