Sustainable Energy

JACOB'S VISION ON

the Environment

Our current environment is crumbling under the stress caused by increased CO2 emission, unsustainable energy, deregulation of environmental protection under the current administration, etc. The negative effects of environmental impacts are felt the most by low-income communities. Kids living low income urbanized communities face higher incidences of asthma as they experience low air quality and air pollution. 

I will: 

  • Support legislation that implements renewable energy initiatives such as ensuring that Boston’s public facilities and buildings function on 100% renewable energy.

  • Decrease the destruction of green spaces and support the creation of parks, community gardens, and bikeways--which will increase air quality. 

  •  Advocate for planting more trees and installing solar panels throughout the district. 

  • Advocate for a plan for MBTA transportation to transition into using vehicles (buses and trains) that function on renewable energy.
