Sen. Pete Harckham Invites New Yorkers To Speak Up

NYS Senator Pete Harckham wants all New Yorkers to take part in the Climate Action Council’s hearings and to keep involved in order to bring about needed actions to fight climate change.

The Climate Action Council has staged public meetings throughout New York accepting comments from the public that will be compiled and become of the urgently needed Climate Action and Community Protection Act.  

The legislature  passed CLCPA as a scopping plan – not a bill.  The intent was two fold. To infuse the goals making New York State green and a leader in the fight against global warming into the entire apparatus of State government and to solicit the opinions of as many New Yorkers as possible.

Here is a short stack of some of the proposed goals.

40% reduction in emissions by 2030.

70% renewable electricity by 2030.

100% zero-emissions electricity generation  by 2040.

40% reduction in overall greenhouse gas emissions  by 2040.

85% reduction in overall greenhouse gas emissions by 2050.

The major overall goal is to eliminate  100% of the climate pollution caused by humans.
