I went to the Public Occurrence on Climate sponsored by RIC, Leadership RI and the Providence Journal on April 15. The mostly gray haired audience clearly understood that that climate change is being caused by humans burning fossil fuels and that we had better do something very big and right now or this is going to be a huge problem that threatens civilization . In Rhode Island one of the ways that we can carry our share of the load is to stop building any new fossil fuel infrastructure. When NO LNG in PVD’s Monica Huertas said that we should stop building any new fossil fuel infrastructure it received the loudest cheers of the night. And remember how gray haired the audience was. The people of RI have already decided to oppose any new fossil fuel infrastructure and to demand that the economy be tilted towards clean energy and justice. It appears that only the political class and those directly paid by the fossil fuel polluters support continue to march off the climate cliff. We have less than 10 years to turn the tide or the tide will swallow our communities. NO New Fossil Fuel Infrastructure, let’s not make the hole any deeper.
