I just started a petition on the White House petitions site and I invite you to spread the word.

My hope is that it will help to initiate national and state “Manhattan Project” to make renewable energy the primary source of energy.

Best regards,

Replace income tax with revenue neutral carbon tax i.e. remove income taxes completely and replace them with carbon tax structured in such a way that the same amount of tax revenue is created. If necessary low income families could be subsidized to preserve progressive nature of current tax scheme. This change should introduce very powerful incentive to reduce carbon footprint and at the same time significantly simplify tax code. Many regulations (e.g. CAFE) would become unnecessary – change in energy consumption patterns would be driven by the market. Article in New York Times (“Carbon Taxes Make Ireland Even Greener” ELISABETH ROSENTHAL, December 27, 2012) gives an interesting example how effective such scheme could be.

It has come to my attention that you are soliciting donations from my Dad, who has Alzheimer’s disease. At this time, I am requesting no future solicitations for donations from my Dad, given his current health status.

Dear Chuck, thanks for checking. Your source is misinformed: we are one of three political parties in MA with major party ballot-access status. We are not a political designation. The 5% of the vote I received in my 2010 run for state auditor regained our major party status. We are small in numbers, but we are the only major party that is growing in registration. We’d welcome your help! —-Nat Fortune, Green-Rainbow Party treasurer.

I was told today (6/19/2012) that the Green-Rainbow has lost its political party status in Massachusetts. Is this true?

Sustainability has become a theme in today’s economy, and North Country Sustainability Center has a holistic approach to it. I’d like to invite you to attend our NCSC Open House on April 15, from 10-4 p.m. in Ashburnham, MA. Originally scheduled for early March, a death in one of director’s family caused us to reschedule it. We hope that you can join us on this exciting day.

Our retail store, The Porch, and farmer’s market outlet, The Farmer’s Porch, will be operating as well our art gallery, “The SchoolHouse Gallery.” We’ll also have educational exhibits and demonstrations, plus a special speaker, Brett Markham, author of “Mini-Farming: Self-Sufficiency on a Quarter Acre.” The NCSC can be found at 12 Memorial Drive, Ashburnham, MA between the library and the Town Hall.

NCSC is leasing part of a retired elementary school, and is focused on purchasing additional buildings just three blocks away. This will help with the creation of a cultural district, as well as provide incubator space for several small businesses, many of which are based up on traditional and agricultural skills.

You can see more about North Country Sustainability Center, Inc. at www.northcountrysustain.org.

Please feel free to call me at 978-827-1305 if I can answer any questions. Thank you.
