President Biden Commits to Cutting U.S. Emissions in Half by 2030

For Immediate Release: April 22, 2021

The following quote is attributable to Peter M. Iwanowicz, Executive Director of Environmental Advocates NY and member of the New York State Climate Action Council:

“President Biden’s announcement today that the United States will cut fossil fuel emissions in half by 2030 shows the world that we are back in the climate game and is a vote of confidence in New York and our climate law. In order for the U.S. to meet President Biden’s new emissions commitment, New York must not fail to achieve its own 2030 target. It’s clear there is no time left for incrementalism or false solutions. This Earth Day, New Yorkers must heed the President’s call and rededicate ourselves to transitioning our economy off fossil fuels and doing so with equity and justice.”
