New governors are getting ready to take office in 20 states, from Florida to Alaska. As America’s newly elected governors prepare to take on their states’ biggest challenges, they should prioritize taking bold action on the greatest challenge of our time: climate change.
To protect our health, clean up our air, and ensure a safe future for our children, and to lead the way for the rest of the nation and the world, Massachusetts should set out an ambitious plan to achieve 100 percent renewable energy. The winner of this fall’s gubernatorial election should do everything possible to accelerate our transition from fossil fuels to renewable energy, including implementing the recommendations in this agenda.
