State Senator Adam Hinds will host a session of the Massachusetts Clean Energy Future Tour in Pittsfield on Monday.
The tour is a statewide committee initiative on clean energy, climate change and constituent engagement. State Senator Adam Hinds is a Democrat.
“I think there is no more important time then now to be talking about climate change and the policies that we need to be looking at seriously in the commonwealth,” Hinds says. “I think that we have seen that this administration at the federal level is, is hostile to the environment and health in that regard and so we have been very deliberate about what is the state-level reaction.”
Clean energy employs more than 105,000 Massachusetts workers and growing — according to the Massachusetts Clean Energy Center’s annual Clean Energy Industry Report.
Hinds will be joined by Senate President Pro Tempore Marc Pacheco of Taunton, who founded the Senate Committee on Global Warming and Climate Change.
The tour starts at 6 at Berkshire Community College.
