Bob Massie Is Putting Climate and Democracy at the Center of the Massachusetts Governor’s Race 1


The Nation has the article Bob Massie Is Putting Climate and Democracy at the Center of the Massachusetts Governor’s Race.

If this racial-justice and climate activist wins the nomination, he’ll be on the ballot along with Senator Elizabeth Warren.

I know I won’t be voting for Elizabeth Warren, but for Governor, my vote is up for grabs. So far, I have read about or listened to Setti Warren and now Bob Massie.

    Here is some of what Massie said about his teaching about Denmark’s record with renewable energy,

    And I talk about, not only do the Danish have clean, renewable energy, they structure the equity so that often the local people have shares, so they get clean renewable energy and a check. And then, if we have time, I go into what distributed energy would mean for their pocketbooks, for their freedom from fossil-fuel long-term expenses, pipelines, utility decision making, and people get that.… You don’t have to be a deeply engaged environmentalist or a college graduate or anything, people get it like that.

    I liked the part about distributed energy. I think that goes a long way to lessening our vulnerability to unexpected disasters whether from weather, war, or economics. We engineers do not like single points of failure like centralized utilities. The rest of what he said in the excerpt was also very intriguing. That’s why I included the whole paragraph.
