Energy and Climate Issues in Cambridge and in the Senate Race

As the Senate continues its tug of war over health care, the world prepares for the next United Nations conference on climate change in Copenhagen. With this in mind, the City of Cambridge, led by Mayor Denise Simmons and Councilor Henrietta Davis, are putting together a Cambridge Climate Congress. The Congress, which will take place at City Hall on both December 12th and January 23rd, will seek to find a way that Cambridge can take a leadership role in reducing greenhouse gas emissions and driving citizen action on climate change. We encourage you to take a look at the Congress if you are in Cambridge and seek out opportunities to get involved. Cambridge-Somerville for Change will be monitoring the event and posting more about it in the weeks ahead.

Also, the Massachusetts Democratic Senate primary is coming up on December 8th. We encourage you to read over the energy and environmental plans that Michael Capuano, Martha Coakley, Alan Khazei, and Steve Pagliuca. While the economy, health care, and Afghanistan have been at the center of the campaign, the next Senator from Massachusetts will have a unique opportunity to push legislation to reduce global warming pollution and create green jobs.
