Statement on Governor Cuomo’s State of the State speech on the “Green Energy Economy”

For Immediate Release: January 13, 2021

The following quote can be attributed to Peter M. Iwanowicz, executive director of Environmental Advocates NY: 

“Today’s speech by Governor Cuomo laid out in stark terms the immense challenges New York faces due to a warming climate and was clear-eyed about the extent of change needed to overcome those challenges. New York must have an economy that is completely powered by renewable energy, and today Governor Cuomo confirmed that is the direction we are moving. We look forward to learning of other pieces of the Governor’s agenda—like electrifying transportation and addressing building efficiency—that are also essential in the battle against climate change. New Yorkers are ready to take advantage of the opportunities to come. Let’s get to work.”
