A Wise Hire

Guest Post by Susan Falkoff

Here’s some good news in what someone at described as “a very [expletive deleted in deference to Steve] week”:

The Massachusetts Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs has hired Marc Breslow of the Massachusetts Climate Action Network (MCAN) to develop state policies for reducing greenhouse gas emissions from transportation and buildings.
For those of us concerned about global warming – and who isn’t? – this is wonderful news. If you haven’t encountered Marc, you haven’t been active on this issue in Massachusetts. No one knows more, has done more, has spurred others on to do more, than Marc. He said, “I've had a great time being part of our growing movement, and am happy that I can continue doing so with a state administration that really wants to address the issue.” Congratulations to Marc and to Gov. Patrick’s administration for making a very wise hire. Check out for more information about MCAN and information about what’s happening in your town to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
