Sustainability and Climate Action

Five western Massachusetts Leagues sent a letter to Massachusetts AG Martha Healey. Recording of TUE hearing 7/30/21

June 2, 2021 Legislative hearing on The Future of Heat bill (H.3298/S.2148)

The Biomass Resolution proposed by LWVA was passed, in slightly revised form, by the Amherst Town Council on February 8, 2021.

LWVA's Sustainability and Climate Action Committee urges the Amherst Town Council to pass a resolution protesting the use of state subsidies for energy generation from woody biomass.

Local Leagues are telling the conference committee responsible for reconciling the Senate and House climate bills passed earlier this year that biomass energy must be removed from the list of “non-carbon emitting fuels.”

Detailed amendments for the state Renewable Portfolio Standard for biomass may seem like getting down into weedy domains best left to the experts. But are they?

The proposed purchase is aligned with League positions on the Climate Emergency and the Connecticut River watershed.

LWVA supports Amherst's climate action goals.

On a beautiful autumn Saturday morning, 100-150 volunteers converged on Groff Park in Amherst for the Fort River Watershed's section of the Connecticut River Conservancy's Source to Sea Cleanup, armed with large plastic bags.
