Brookline Gas Leaks – Local Climate Action!

853

Did you know that Brookline has 250 natural gas leaks under our roads, leaking methane gas near our schools, homes and businesses? That is a daunting number of leaks. Half of all the leaked methane gas comes from just 7% of the largest gas leaks. Fixing these gas leaks will dramatically reduce emissions and save ratepayer money in the fastest, most efficient manner.

Please join us to tag us on Saturday to tag the reported #gasleaks. We will give a brief overview of why gas leaks are so toxic to the environment and our public health, then we will split into teams and tag the leaks around #Brookline. You will be provided with instructions, maps and materials. You can give as much or as little time as you have that morning. Bring the whole family – kids welcome!

The meeting will be held from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. on May 13, 2017.

Our goal is to get National Grid (our gas utility) to know that Brookline wants our biggest leaks fixed fast.

The event is co-sponsored by State Senator Cynthia Creem, Climate Action Brookline, Temple Sinai, Temple Israel, 350 Mass for a Better Future, Brookline TEEN Center, Green UP team of United Parish Church of Brookline, Elders Climate Action, Mass Health Care Providers Against Fracked Gas, Girl Scout Brownie troop 62564, BHS Environmental Action Club, and Rep.
