From Fossil Free NY:
Now, more than ever, New York needs to be a real climate leader. With the White House controlled by fossil fuel interests, and the Trump administration rolling back climate protections, New York must do more to fight climate change for the people.
Our vision for a Fossil Free New York includes:
- A fast and just transition to 100% renewable energy
- A ban on all new and planned fossil fuel infrastructure
- Making corporate polluters pay & divesting from fossil fuels
Some of these proposals are covered under proposed laws, including S.4596, which divests the NYS pension funds from fossil fuels), S.5647 (which asks CUNY and SUNY trustees to divest from fossil fuels), but many of them are just great ideas that you should ask your reps to support.
