Support Smart Action on Clean Energy

A broad coalition of Vermont groups has developed a smart, high impact, and equitable approach to lowering carbon pollution from Vermont's buildings. Learn more by by clicking here.

Greenhouse gas emissions from buildings is the 2nd largest source of this pollution in Vermont. (Combined with transportation, these two sectors represent about 2/3 of all VT's emissions.)  As medical and health professionals, our focus is always on addressing the biggest problems first. To learn why we need to address buildings immediately, please read this recent op-ed.

When Vermont lawmakers get 10, 20, 30 calls about an issue, they notice. You need to speak up now before they close up shop for the year in a few weeks.


A simple message, emailed or left on their voicemail, will do it.

As Margaret Mead said, “Never underestimate the power of a small group of committed people to change the world. In fact, it is the only thing that ever has.”

The Message

"Scientists are saying we have about a decade to get climate change under control so that we can protect our kids and our communities. It is time for Vermont to start passing smart, equitable legislation commensurate to the challenge. Small actions are simply a waste of time. Please ensure the Affordable Heat Act is passed into law in 2023. We can't afford to wait any longer."
