Climate and Energy Team,

Green Cambridge will be hosting the 7th biennial Cambridge City Council Candidates' Night on Environmental and Energy (E/E) Issues on Wednesday October 30, from 7:00 PM to 9:30 PM, at the Cambridge Citywide Senior Center, 806 Massachusetts Avenue, Central Square.


GC has asked if Cambridge-Somerville for Change would like to cosponsor this event.  As a cosponsor, we would have the opportunity to draft questions, as well as having our organization listed as a cosponsor on all our materials (press releases, posters, etc.), and the opportunity to participate at the event itself.  In return we would publicize the event to our members, and contribute time (set-up and clean-up) and funds are also appreciated. 

In addition, as you probably know, there is currently a petition before the Cambridge City Council proposing that new buildings over a certain size constructed in Cambridge -  buildings that require a special permit because they're 25,000 square feet -  be required to achieve Net Zero Emissions, through a combination of energy efficiency, on site generation, and purchases of "green power".  Here's the petition's web site:    I encourage you to sign it if you can. 


The petitioners - The Cambridge Committee for Net Zero Energy Buildings  has asked if the Climate and Energy Team would endorse the petition.

I'm about to be away for a few weeks and am too buried in work right now to organize a meeting to discuss the Candidates Night and the Net Zero Petition.  Would someone else like to? Or perhaps we could vote on-line?
