The Patrick administration and the Legislature take pride in t their environmental and energy record, and they should. But we are one year into the governor’s second term, and the State House is quiet, too quiet. Passage of the Global Warming Solutions Act and Green Communities Act, both in 2008, gave Massachusetts the ”opportunity” for national leadership in energy efficiency, renewable energy and job creation. The good news is Massachusetts is now first in the nation in energy efficiency, and the Governor and legislature deserve great credit. But as we take pride in our energy efficiency, our work has only scratched the surface. Legacy at Risk George Bachrach 2/6/12
