Stand up for more offshore wind in Massachusetts

In order to avoid the worst impacts of global warming, we have to transition to 100 percent renewable energy -- and fast. With enough wind off its shores to provide 11 times the state’s electricity consumption, Massachusetts can lead the way.

I support the rapid, large-scale development of offshore wind to reduce pollution, improve public health, and reduce the carbon pollution causing global warming.

Now is the moment for the Commonwealth to lead the nation into a new energy chapter, and I urge you to commit to a visionary scale and schedule for the responsible development of our largest untapped clean energy solution.
