Attend a Gas Pipeline Rally in Boston on July 30th!

Here in Massachusetts, we can be proud of the state’s track record in protecting land, water, and prime outdoor experiences while also reducing carbon emissions, improving energy efficiency, and other measures to reduce our demand for fossil fuels.

Which is why a proposal for a new gas pipeline from New York, through the Berkshires, and to eastern Massachusetts makes little sense.

Attend a rally to protest this pipeline at the Boston Common on July 30, 11:00 am – 1:00 pm.

Breathe deep. The Clean Air Act is working.

Clean air and water are worth protecting.

That’s something we can all get behind. AND we as a nation have, with bi-partisan laws like the Clean Air Act (CAA). The 1990 CAA Amendments signed into law by President George H. Bush have helped ensure that we don’t take the air we breathe for granted.

And it’s working! Learn more >>

AMC Voices Northern Pass Opposition to New England Governors

Appalachian Mountain Club Vice-President for Conservation Susan Arnold on July 9, 2014, sent letters to New England governors expressing AMC’s opposition to the proposed Northern Pass electric transmission line, and asked the rest of New England’s heads of state to stand with New Hampshire Governor Maggie Hassan, who has publicly stated her opposition to the project as proposed.

The letters were sent in anticipation of the 38th Annual Conference of New England Governors and Eastern Canadian Premiers, to be hosted by Governor Hassan at Bretton Woods, N.H., July 13-15.

“We in New England deserve better than Northern Pass, and most especially New Hampshire deserves better. We will not trade away the majestic beauty of New Hampshire. We will insist on smart, modern, and well-planned energy projects that protect our invaluable natural and scenic resources, not compromise them,” Arnold wrote, in part.

Similar letters were sent to the governors of Massachusetts, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Maine, and Vermont. Read the letter to Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick here and learn more about Northern Pass here.
