If we allow oil companies to frack across the Pioneer Valley, it would be an environmental nightmare for our water, air and land.
Through Environment Massachusetts, thousands of citizen members are teaming up with a professional staff to stand up for the places we love and the environmental values we share.
In October, Environment Massachusetts staff members Ben Wright and Lauren Randall brought four mothers from Needham, Belchertown, Brookline and Boston to meet face-to-face with Sen. Scott Brown and urge him to oppose attacks on the Clean Air Act that are supported by polluters and their allies in congress. During the meeting, the mothers asked Sen. Brown to oppose Sen. Rand Paul’s (Ky.) legislation, which would have allowed out-of-state polluters to continue to shirk their responsibility for the pollution they cause—pollution that leads to thousands of childhood asthma attacks in Massachusetts alone. On Nov. 10, both Sen. Brown and Sen. Kerry stood with Massachusetts’ kids and voted against Rand Paul’s dirty air act.
