Letter to the Editor: Local Groups Opposing Hanscom Hanger Expansion Recommend Webinar

Submitted by Corinne Doud 

I encourage the community to register to attend this webinar and spread the word: 

Wed, June 21, 5:00 – 6:00 pm via Zoom: Stop Private Jet Expansion in Massachusetts 

Join Bill McKibben (Third Act) & Neil Rasmussen (Save Our Heritage) and others who are fighting to prevent a major Private Jet Expansion at Hanscom Airfield for an informational webinar. Neil Rasmussen, president of Save Our Heritage, will present recent research on the impacts of the proposed development on state and municipal Climate Goals.  Bill McKibben, an internationally recognized Climate Change expert and activist, will address why he calls Hanscom a “zombie project from the fossil fuel era”.

We will never be able to meet the goals of the state to get close to net zero.if we allow this expansion of jet planes.
