Two pieces of good news:
- On Monday the states that are a part of the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI), including New York, agreed to a reduction in the emissions cap, from 141 million tons to 91 million tons. This will reduce the amount of carbon being put into our atmosphere.
- On Tuesday the Department of Health Commissioner Dr. Shah said that he needs more time to complete the health review on hydrofracking, effectively keeping the state from rushing a decision.
New York Interfaith Power and Light and many of you have written letters and made phone calls to push for these two things, and our state’s leaders have heard our call. Thank you for all you have done and continue to do!
