With extra effort, New York can still meet climate goals

New Yorkers aren’t known for patience—and when it comes to climate change, that’s good. States and cities don’t need the federal government to set goals to cut greenhouse gas emissions and use more renewable resources. In New York, we’re already on it.

With past support from The Trust totaling $225,000, Environmental Advocates of New York’s efforts paid off: The State agreed to get half of its electricity from renewable sources by 2030. But we need to do more to meet New York’s goal for an economy powered by 100 percent clean, renewable energy by 2050. With a new, $150,000 grant from The Trust, the environmental group will continue advocating for climate policy to improve air quality, lower household energy costs, and create jobs.
