Former Mass. Secretary of Energy Urges Mass. AG to Focus on Climate Solutions, Instead of Climate Lawsuits

Joseph Fitzpatrick, a former Massachusetts secretary of energy, wrote an op-ed in the Boston Business Journal urging Massachusetts AG Maura Healey to use practical actions to address climate change rather than just filing lawsuits.

 Fitzpatrick urged AG Healey to use a multitude of other options to help address climate change, saying “a 200-page lawsuit isn’t one of them.” He urged Healey to “abandon pursuit of pointless, symbolic lawsuits against energy companies and focus on investing taxpayer resources in clean energy solutions.”
