PITTSFIELD — Good job saving energy, now let's really get to work. Environment Massachusetts Research & Policy Center relayed this message during a visit to the city Wednesday to recognize Pittsfield's energy-saving prowess.
A mock trial last week involving some of the most prominent scientists in the global warming debate highlighted agreement on energy policy, regardless of one’s position on the science of global warming.
I’m a conservative, and I believe that climate change is real.
I believe it is time our leaders come together to advance free-market solutions that will reduce our impact on the climate.
I believe we can make our air and water cleaner, ensure greater domestic energy security, and strengthen our economy through smart, market-driven investments in clean energy sources like wind, solar, and nuclear.
And, I believe it is our responsibility as conservatives to be good stewards of God’s creation. We owe it to ourselves and to future generations to ensure American prosperity and environmental security.
