Massachusetts is on a mission to self destruct their landscape and their economy. Let's try and keep them from dragging us down!
These politicians, I assume none of whom are scientists, and also none of them are very astute economists, are setting Massachusetts on a straight line to electricity disfunctionality and economic disaster.
Several gas pipelines would be cheaper to build, provide not only gas for electricity, but eliminate fuel oil for heating and make miraculous improvements to the CO2 levels they are so worried about. They would MORE than meet the Paris numbers and would do it at a price that would be far better for both the state and the customers.
Transportation is a far worse problem and if they think everyone is going to move to EV they are crazy. They don't have enough power now and charging all those vehicles will break the system. And Battery storage? Still completely untested and extraordinarily expensive. There is also a need for lithium for all those batteries, and that is REALLY expensive, plus it has to be replaced every 8 - 10 years.
