DEAR FELLOW CITIZEN OF THE COMMONWEALTH:
I am proud to announce the Massachusetts Climate ProtectionPlan,the first in the history of the Commonwealth and among thestrongest in our nation.Since taking office in January 2003,this Administration has embarked on a “no regrets”policy towardsclimate change.Rather than focusing our energy on the debateover the causes of global warming and the impact of human activity on climate,we have chosen to put our emphasis on actions,notdiscourse.If climate change is happening,the actions we take willhelp.If climate change is largely caused by human actions,this will really help.If we learn decades from now that climate change isn’t happening,these actions will stillhelp our economy,our quality of life and the quality of our environment.The same policies that protect the climate also promote energy efficiency,smart business practices,and improve the environment in which our citizens live and work.For Massachusetts,promoting climateprotection in the Commonwealth and throughout our nation also promotes Massachusetts businesses thatare at the forefront of the new markets for renewable energy technologies.Just as the brainpower of thisstate has been put to work by the nation and the world to develop the high-tech and biotech industries, we can also lead the nation in new energy technologies.The actions in this Climate Protection Plan will have a significant impact on the future of our state. Although many of the policies will not be easy to implement,the benefits will be long-lasting and enormous –benefits to our health,our economy,our quality of life,our very landscape.These are actions we can andmust take now if we are to have “no regrets”when we transfer our temporary stewardship of this earthto the next generation.Sincerely,Mitt Romney 
Governor
