Pass Climate Change Legislation Now

Pass Climate Change Legislation Now

The New York State Legislature and Governor Cuomo have until June 19th to agree on and pass nation-leading legislation to address climate change. The debate is over: climate change is real and presents an immense threat to our children, planet Earth, and the Adirondacks. It must be dealt with immediately, to preserve our Adirondack Park’s legacy, clean drinking water, rare wildlife, wilderness, and communities.

With the absence of environmental leadership in Washington D.C., New York could be leading the way. The Legislature’s proposed Climate and Community Protection Act (CCPA) and the Governor’s proposed Climate Leadership Act (CLA) present two of the strongest climate policy proposals in existence.

On June 19th the New York Legislature gavels out of its 2019 session, leaving very little time to merge the best of these two proposals together and secure a climate victory this year. We need your help:

Please tell the Governor and your legislators to approve strong climate legislation before the 2019 legislative session comes to an end. Please personalize your letter and tell them:

  • Thank you for your nation-leading proposals to fight climate change. Please merge the best of both proposals and pass the strongest climate change law in the country before the session ends.
  • Please ensure climate legislation sets bold binding goals for reductions in greenhouse gas emissions, protects all communities, promotes real renewable energy, and incentivizes carbon offsets and carbon sequestration that protect Adirondack forests.
  • Please make sure legislation sets aggressive and achievable target dates for climate actions and goals.

Write your state policymakers by June 19th!

You can edit the letter in the box or send as-is. Even though the form says "mobile phone," number you can enter a non-mobile phone number. Thank you!
