Global Warming Solutions Act sign now

Senator Stanley Rosenberg
State House
Room 320
Boston, MA 02133-1099

Dear Senator,

Global warming represents a challenge to our state, region, and the
world. The Global Warming Solutions Act can help make deep reductions in
heat-trapping emissions and protect us from the most dangerous
consequences of global warming.

A new report by the Northeast Climate Impacts Assessment illustrates the
importance of making smart choices now to reduce our region's global
warming pollution and the cost of inaction on the Northeast's health,
economy, and natural resources.
Without urgent action today, Massachusetts could face:

* more than 60 days per year over 90 degrees Fahrenheit in Boston, with
24 of those topping 100 degrees;

* the loss of cod population in the historically important fishing
ground of Georges Bank; and

* sea-level rise of 10 inches to two feet by end of the century,
increasing the frequency and severity of damaging storm surges, and
harming the state's coastal communities, infrastructure, transportation
systems, industry, and critical

However, significant and sustained action can dramatically decrease the
impact of global warming. As a national and international leader on
energy conservation and environmental stewardship efforts, Massachusetts
can continue to take the lead in reducing global warming pollution by
enacting this legislation.

The timing of this legislation fits right in synch with our local
efforts. Many of us here at Sirius Ecovillage and throughout Shutesbury
have already taken many individual and community steps in the right
direction. It would help us greatly as we work assiduously to do more
individually and to develop a more effective Town Open Space Plan,
supportive new Zoning Bylaw and marketable carbon offset credits that
will ensure CO2 sequestration in our forests, if we had the kind of
targets this law would provide. It would allow all of us to calculate
our equitable shares of the GHG reduction efforts in a realistic frame
of reference.

Thank you for your thoughtful representation.

We urge you to support passage of S. 534, the Global Warming Solutions
Act sponsored by Senator Pacheco, during the 2007 legislative session.
