LWVMA Climate and Energy Solutions Series Webinar: Driving Down Emissions

DRIVING DOWN EMISSIONS:
Massachusetts and the
Regional Transportation and Climate Initiative
Tuesday April 23, 2019
4:00pm-5:00pm
Representative Lori Ehrlich,
Massachusetts House of Representatives and
Jordan Stutt,
Carbon Programs Director for Regional and State Initiatives, Acadia Center

The speakers will discuss:

  • What the Transportation and Climate Initiative is and why it is important
  • State legislative efforts led by Representative Lori Ehrlich to guide development of a
    sustainable and equitable plan
  • Followed by Q & A

The latest science reports leave no doubt that reducing greenhouse gas emissions is essential if we are to avoid the worst impacts of climate change. Emissions from transportation account for 39% of total emissions in the New England region. In
December 2018, nine northeastern states and the District of Columbia announced an agreement to work collaboratively on a regional plan to reduce emissions from the transportation sector. Massachusetts was one of the first states to join.
