Climate Solutions: Our moonshot moment

— Noli Taylor

Thomas Friedman, NY Times columnist, says “… as bad as this pandemic is, it’s just training wheels for the big, irreversible atmospheric pandemic: climate change.”

We were not prepared for the pandemic but we can prepare for the impacts of the climate crisis and reduce how much we are contributing to it. We have 10 years to make a real difference with climate change.  This is our “moonshot moment!”

This twice-monthly box (and the website below) will give you ideas on how to take action and help our Island meet the proposed goal of 100% Renewable MV by 2040.

What can you do?

  • Let your voice be heard – Vote: our future depends on it! Use your power as a citizen to elect officials — at the federal, state, and local levels — who not only acknowledge climate change, but are committed to advocating for  a fossil-free future.
  • Support the 100% Renewable MV initiative when it comes up at town meeting (West Tisbury and Aquinnah this fall).
  • Support town initiatives and warrant articles that make your town’s buildings energy-efficient and 100% electric.

An Edey Foundation grant supports this effort. Visit
