Climate Action Now!

Greens Demand More on Climate Change

Greens testified at State Senate hearings across New York State during February 2019 on legislation to address the climate crisis, specifically how to strengthen and improve the Climate and Community Protection Act (CCPA). They called for a climate bill that incorporates the strongest and best provisions of all the climate bills that have been introduced, noting that climate legislation should be combined with economic justice legislation as part of a broader Green New Deal. They emphasized that climate science indicates that the proper goal for reducing greenhouse gas emissions should be the elimination of new fossil fuel infrastructure and a move to 100% clean, renewable energy production by 2030.
