Updates on NYS Climate Initiatives, Battles

On the NYS climate change front, we first talk with Alex Beauchamp of Food and Water Action about the ongoing fight over The Wiliams Pipeline (including the Governor’s threat to yank National Grid’s license to operate downstate) and the Green New Deal effort in NY. We then hear from Bob Cohen of Citizens Action about NY Renews’ call for $1 billion in the upcoming state budget for climate initiatives with a justice focus, along with their push for a polluter penalty.
