People’s Energy: How Can We Win a Clean Energy Future?
April 20, 2015 - 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM
Our collective organizing over the last five years convinced Governor Cuomo to say No to fracking in New York. But much more needs to be done to end our society’s reliance on fossil fuels and to curb the growing problem of climate change.
More than 50 organizations across New York have joined in a campaign for 100% clean energy by 2030 in NYS – building upon the Jacobson study done several years proving that it is technologically feasible to do so. The biggest challenges to our renewable energy future are political and economic.
Mark Dunlea of the Green Education and Legal Education fund will discuss how you can help push the Governor and state lawmakers to commit to transition to 100% clean energy. He will also provide an overview of other state and local efforts to promote clean energy
Joining the discussion:
Howie Hawkins, recent Green Party candidate for Governor. on the Green New Deal
Jessica Azulay of AGREE, discussing the Reforming Energy Vision (REV) at the PSC and the need for energy democracy
Stacey Smith of Fossil Free NY on the campaign to divest the state pension funds from fossil fuels.
Free and open to the public.
