2015 Fellow Michael A. Rawlins says he commends President Obama for his new plan to reduce greenhouse gas emissions across the country

Massachusetts should have little trouble adapting to President Barack Obama’s new rule on reducing power plants’ greenhouse gas emissions because the state already passed a more aggressive plan, according to Senate President Stanley Rosenberg of Amherst. Along with climate scientist Michael Rawlins and spokesmen for energy providers in western Massachusetts, Rosenberg applauded the plan.

Rawlins adds additional comments in the article "Massachusetts has more aggressive plan than new federal rule reducing power plants’ greenhouse gas emissions", published in the Daily Hampshire Gazette on August 6, 2015.
