Gas is not safe, not clean, not green.
The Campaign for A Future WithOut Gas and For Clean Energy (AFWOG) was organized by members of Mothers Out Front Newton, 350Mass Newton, and Green Newton who shared a sense of urgency to achieve the safety and economic security of clean energy and to reduce the enormous cost, risk, waste and pollution of leaky gas pipelines.
AFWOG also promotes a state legislative initiative, Empowering Municipal Voices H.3137/SD.2603, An Act relative to intervenors and utility work, to give municipalities the authority they need to overcome barriers to transparency and accountability so they can plan for the strategic triage and transition from gas to sustainable solutions such as solar, wind, heat pumps, networked geothermal, demand response, and efficiency for clean energy and to create quality jobs.
