One of our major campaigns in 2013 was to get the NY-Sun Initiative, which helps get climate-friendly solar developments up and running, secured for another 10 years. Thousands of our members contacted Governor Cuomo, and he’s made it happen! You deserve a big hand for helping us notch this important victory for cleaner, healthier energy – thank you!

How did the issue of climate change become so polarizing? Documented scientific evidence of decades of rising temperatures – with 12 of the hottest years on record occurring in the last 15 years, stronger and more intense storms, severe flooding and prolonged drought seem to be having little to no impact on American public opinion.
As the federal government looks for ideas to implement a national program that both decreases climate pollution and increases investments in clean energy solutions, it should look no further than the Northeast and our very own Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI).
