February’s focus – Environment!
We’ve spent the last couple weeks looking at the Green New Deal, and other federal initiatives under consideration. While ultimately climate needs to be addressed at a federal (and global!) level, we should take the opportunity to push our New York legislation to move forward now!
Contact your Assembly and State Senate representatives, and let them know that you want them to support:
- The Governor’s budget language, with a deadline of 2040 for 100% clean energy for electricity, 70% by 2030;
- The Climate and Community Protection Act (CCPA – A3876 / S2992), which sets a deadline of 2050 for 100% clean energy from all sources and 50% clean energy for electricity by 2030;
- Support the NY Off Fossil Fuels / 100% Renewable by 2030 (NY OFF – A5105 /S5908) which has a 2030 deadline for 100% renewable energy from all sources.
Really want to drive home your desire to see climate action in NYS? Join the Food and Water Watch for an advocacy day in Albany on Tuesday, March 5. More info here.
