“Trump’s Executive Order cannot repeal the science or reality of climate change. Today will be remembered as a day of infamy, as the country most responsible for threatening life’s existence on our planet once again is placing the wealth and greed of the fossil fuel industry ahead of the well-being of its citizens. But the struggle to avoid catastrophic climate change was never going to be led by the political and economic leaders, especially in the U.S. The voices calling for an immediate transition to 100% clean energy must be raised even higher, and the front lines of resistance must grow ever larger and bolder,” said Mark Dunlea, chair of the Green Education and Legal Fund.
GELF coordinates a statewide campaign to transition to 100% clean energy in NYS by 2030.
