- Paint Brown Green
(join on FaceBook)
The objective of Paint Brown Green is to make MA Senator Scott Brown
recommit to climate action. We will do this by pointing out the
economic and ecological benefits of switching away from fossil
fuels. Our plan of action is to provide him with continuous
informative emails, phone calls, letters, and visits.
Climate change will not wait until 2012, and neither can we. We don't
need a democrat to get climate action. It's time to roll up our
sleeves and PAINT BROWN GREEN!

The Leadership Campaign
The science is clear: We need to act now. World leaders gathered in
Copenhagen, Denmark in December, 2009 and failed to agree on a
binding, aggressive, and fair global treaty. Our leaders in congress
have similalry failed to act, but individuals across Massachusetts are
standing up and declaring their leadership. Students, Businesspeople,
Clergy, and Legislators. We will not stop until our state commits to
repowering with 100% Clean Electricity by 2020.
