We have great news! The Climate and Community Investment Act has officially been introduced in the New York State senate as bill S4264A. Thanks to all the hard work from our coalition members, we are one step closer to creating a just transition for NYS. Every lobbying event, art action, email, and phone call has led to this moment. However, we must keep this momentum going to encourage our legislators to sign on and support the CCIA in order to ensure that corporate polluters pay for the damage they have done to our communities!

Make Your Voice Heard: National Grid - Rate Case

The gas rate hike proposed by National Grid would fund $41.8 milion in new gas delivery infrastructure, in just one year alone. The proposal would replace unsafe gas pipelines as well as extend National Grid’s gas system to new customers. The methane gas delivered by National Grid is a major contributor to the climate emergency. It’s time for National Grid to change its business model, rather than keep changing the climate.

National Grid wants to raise their prices on electricity and gas by almost $100 per year for the average customer. Make your voice heard!

02/24/2021

A new report produced by NY Renews policy committee and written by Lew Daly has just been released discussing the next hurdle brought on by fossil fuel corporations-- False Solutions.

These false fossil fuel alternatives are the next defense strategy that fossil fuel companies are using to avoid the emission mandates required by the Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act.

From renewable natural gas to “green” hydrogen, these solutions are no “cleaner” than their fossil fuel counterparts. From increased greenhouse gas emissions to directly harming BIPoC and low-income communities, we must avoid these new narratives about “clean” energy.

Read and share the report now: http://bit.ly/falsesolutions

This just in! A new report produced by NY Renews Policy Committee and written by Lew Daly has just been released. Titled False Solutions, this report documents how the fossil fuel industry is holding back a just transition. Through examples of green hydrogen, biomass, and others, it is clear that the fossil fuel corporations want to maintain the climate crisis status quo. Through the Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act, all New Yorkers were promised new jobs, cleaner air, and a livable future. We must protect this future by calling out these False Solutions! Read and share the report now: http://bit.ly/falsesolutions

Enough is enough!!! People please stop calling my phone and harassing me because of what is being shared around facebook under false pretenses. If Carolette is the victim and so terrified of me like she portrays in her posts, why is it that she has been over to my house 4xs since the attack in which I have on video and photos each time and filed aggravated trespassing and criminal mischief against her? Carolette is set to be arraigned Sept 17 for the night in question and Oct 15 for the events that happened after the night in question but she won't tell you all that because she is trying to manipulate everyone. Carolette has a lot of hate in her heart towards me because I have mixed kids. I've had to listen to this woman throw racial slurs at me multiple times. I've dealt with enough stress and pressure living next to someone who has done nothing but terrorize me and my kids for months and now trying to drag my name through the mud for nothing!!! Carolette attacked me and I acted in self defense. Please just leave me alone!!!
Friday, August 7th, at 3:30 p.m. at Bidwell and Elmwood, come and view the placement of tombstone replicas (and banners) with the name and year of persons who were killed or died at the downtown Holding Center. More than 30 people have died under Sheriff Howard's tenure as sheriff, EVERY LIFE VALUABLE AND IMPORTANT and every death was preventable. We are calling on the governor to remove the sheriff from his office. We are asking for the release of elderly prisoners and fair and humane treatment of every person confined here and throughout New York, approximately sixty (60) thousand women and men. In this age of the corona virus it is imperative that attention and care be provided this most vulnerable population among us, a population disproportionately Black, Brown and poor.
