In-coming Climate Envoy John Kerry recently referenced a World Bank statement that says we need a price on carbon that reaches $100 per ton by the year 2030 to meet our targets under the Paris Climate Accord.      Citizens Climate Lobby has a Carbon Fee and Dividend solution that puts a...
This week, Canada revised their fee on carbon to more rapidly increase the price year after year.

Saturday, December 5, we had our first nor'easter of the season. 30,000 National Grid customers between Lowell and Sturbridge lost power. Many of them were still without power Sunday afternoon.      I’ve been a Commissioner for only the past few months, and I have already learned a lot about...
