Climate Summer 2014 Blog Is Live!

Posted by Marla Marcum, who directs Climate Summer in her role as Director of Programs at Better Future Project.

As I type this, Better Future Project staffers (Ashley and Jamie), along with the five members of the Climate Summer team focused on the eastern half of the proposed Kinder Morgan natural gas pipeline route in Massachusetts, are cleaning up the Pawtucket Congregational Church in Lowell, Massachusetts where Climate Summer has just finished up our training for the 4th year in a row.

Also as I type, I have just received a message that the crew now known as Team For the Masses is stopped for lunch en route to First Baptist Church in Jamaica Plain for a one-night stopover on their way to Brockton.

And while typing that last sentence I got the first update from the Western Massachusetts team (who will focus on the western half of the proposed Kinder Morgan natural gas pipeline this summer). They’ve just had lunch and not that they are safe and on their way. They’ll be stopping for the night at the First Congregational Church of Princeton, UCC before continuing on to Hope United Methodist Church in Belchertown for another overnight stay. You’ll hear more about the rest of their route soon.

I am still waiting to hear from the North Shore team. This girl-power crew is headed to the Quaker Meeting House in Amesbury where they will participate in the festivities known as Amesbury Days as they kick off their summer working to build the resistance to a new natural gas plant in Salem.

Across Massachusetts, when you see them on the road this summer, let them know you’re following the blog and that you support their work. It can get tough out there on the road, and they need your support just as much as the rest of us need their commitment and energy. Together, let’s keep building the fossil fuel resistance right here in Massachusetts!
