> Sophie Robinson, Vice Coordinator of the group 350Massachusetts, will join us to talk about the grassroots organization that is building a social movement to stop burning fossil fuels. With eight locations statewide and two active campaigns, 350MA has regular meetings, events, and actions that harness the greatest source of power: people power.
> Clean energy employment continues to grow in Massachusetts, increasing by 12% from 2012 to 2013. We will take a look at some data from the Massachusetts Clean Energy Center on this and other progress in the last year, and incentives and programs that continue to support more growth in 2014.
