Climate Change Policy Issues In New York
Last month, the world’s leaders conducted the 26th COP – the climate international summit – in Glasgow. The two week event ended without the deep cuts in greenhouse emissions that scientists had pleaded for. Here in New York, the state is still in the process of implementing the Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act that state lawmakers approved 2 and a half years ago. On Tuesday, the Climate Action Council set up to develop a plan for state action on climate met to finish its work on the first draft. Andrea Cunliffe talked to Mark about how climate change policy is developing in New York.
