Environment, Energy, and Climate

Climate change caused by human activity is as real as the Earth is round, and it hits home for Casey as a young person who will experience firsthand the most severe consequences of the choices we make today. But the existential threat posed by climate change and accompanying destruction of the environment isn’t only a problem for the future, it already endangers our livelihoods and way of life here in the towns of the 1st Franklin District.

We need to act quickly. Not just to protect our region’s natural beauty and mitigate the worst and wider effects of climate change, but to seize what is also a very real opportunity to create good-paying jobs, boost economic growth, and save consumers and businesses billions of dollars. This issue is [linked to/touches] so many others—from improving transportation to enhancing public health and getting dark money out of our politics—and we can address much of this with energy that’s clean, reliable, cost-effective, and local.

No matter what happens at the federal level, Casey will push for Massachusetts to meet and beat its commitments under the state’s Global Warming Solutions Act, the Obama-era Clean Power Plan, and the Paris Climate Agreement. As a trailblazer and pacesetter, our state can take up a position of national leadership through both technological and policy innovation, exporting our know-how and doing our part. Casey’s ready to do his part and hopes you’ll join him.
