Take Action: Climate Activists Needed
The climate deniers are trying to end the most successful climate solutions program in New Hampshire. The bill, HB208, would withdraw New Hampshire from the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative, the regional market-based carbon reduction program that has lowered carbon since 2009 in NH and 8 other states. The fact is New Hampshire has lowered greenhouse gas emissions by 37%!Those cuts have earned NH millions of dollars of investments in energy efficiency, weatherization and solar panels right here in New Hampshire. We need you to send the message to the State House to keep RGGI in NH. The House Committee on Science, Technology, and Energy is poised to vote on HB208 on THURSDAY, February 5th. Please send them a message immediately that we need RGGI in NH.
