Nov 13 State Climate Rally Albany on CCIA
On Saturday Nov. 13, 300 climate activists rallied at the State Capitol and held a die in in front of the Governor’s Mansion to call on state lawmakers to take action on climate. A major focus was on the CCIA (Climate and Community Investment Act), a polluter penalty to raise $15 billion a year for climate projects especially in environmental justice committees. We hear from Diane Collin, North Country Earth Action; Pete Looker of PAUSE; Assemblymember Phil Steck; Bob Cohen of Citizen Action; and Alycia Bacon of Mothers Out Front.
