After a few fits and starts, the Boston chapter of the Climate Reality Project is beginning to shape up. Today, I took part on a conference call with about 20 local climate reality leaders. I had written a few draft committee descriptions last week and we used them today to talk through what out chapter might try to accomplish and assign ourselves to committees. Very efficient call, which bodes well for our chapter going forward.
I also signed a petition to ask the state to increase funding for Regional Transit Authorities. Not only are RTAs important for reducing emissions, they also provide vital transportation options for vulnerable populations. We can’t let them languish.
