We are the Berkshire Node of 350MA (350 Massachusetts), a volunteer-led statewide climate action network launched in June 2012 by Better Future Project. Like 350MA itself, the Berkshire Node is made up of concerned citizens and engaged activists who work with the media, organize events, educate their communities, lobby lawmakers, and more. We are working to raise awareness and take action on climate change on statewide and local levels.

Our active campaigns for 2017 are:
1) ReNEWable Massachusetts: We’re calling for a halt to all proposed new fossil fuel infrastructure, including all proposed fracked gas pipelines. These pipelines would bring fracked gas through Berkshire County and threaten the environment and the climate system.
At the same time, we are pushing for the development of renewable energy sources, regulatory reform, energy conservation, and infrastructure repairs to meet our energy needs and ensure a clean, sustainable energy future and economy in Massachusetts.
2) Divest from Fossil Fuels: We’re calling on our government, universities, faith organizations, businesses and individuals to divest from fossil fuel investments.
3) Fair Carbon Pricing: We’re working across the state to put a price on carbon to make polluters pay.
350MA Berkshire Node volunteers also work on a number of local initiatives, including efforts to improve public transportation, fighting to protect our conservation lands, and more
