Church bells are rung to raise the alarm for local communities. The recent “code red” report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) is an alarm call for us all. We’ll ring, clang, drum, and trumpet for eleven minutes on the eleventh day of each month as a symbol of warning.
Now is the eleventh hour for action. It is also a time of hope and opportunity to tread more gently, emit less greenhouse gasses, draw down and store more greenhouse gasses, restore our water cycles, and care more for those already adversely affected by climate change, especially in the economically poorest neighborhoods.
For Massachusetts we want Beacon Hill to pass the 100% Clean Energy Act (H.3288/s.2136). We want the candidates for governor to commit to (1.) require 50% of climate spending directly benefit environmental justice communities; (2.) undertake restructuring to reform utilities & modernize the grid; and (3.) to maximize the economic benefits increase funding of the Massachusetts Clean Energy Council.
The Boston Area Brigade of Activist Musicians (BABAM) will muster at Old Cambridge Baptist Church at 6 pm and march down Mass Ave, around the Harvard Square Kiosk, to First Parish Church.
Strike the Bell. Sound the alarm. Join with First Parish Church in Cambridge and Old Cambridge Baptist Church, and others who care about the climate emergency, environmental justice, and municipal/state planning. For more information, to stand and be heard, and to spread the word, please contact Rob Moir at firstname.lastname@example.org
6-6:30 p.m. On the 11th of each month.
