Bill Keating is a fierce protector of our environment. In the State Legislature, Bill wrote our state's tough safe water law to protect lakes and streams in Massachusetts from chemical pollution. As a result of his success, Bill was named the "Environmental Legislator of the Year" and also received an award from the Congress of Lakes and Ponds. Bill recognizes the threats posed by Global climate change and understands its impact on our coastal communities. In Congress, Bill will tackle climate change by fighting for the passage of an energy bill that increases the use of clean, renewable sources of energy such as solar and wind. Bill is the only candidate in this race to come out in support of Cape Wind because it will help make Massachusetts a leader in the green economy, create hundreds of good paying clean energy jobs, protect our coastline from environmental disasters such as the Gulf oil spill, and reduce our reliance on fossil fuels.
