TAKE ACTION: The Climate & Community Protection Act is the most ambitious climate action bill in the country and would ensure New York is powered 100% by clean, renewable energy. There’s less than a week left in the legislative session, so it’s up to us to make sure legislators move the act to the Senate floor to vote on and pass.

Up here at the State Capitol documenting #nyrenews speaking truth to power! Always love shooting over the shoulder of an interview from the local news 😅 #weouthere

Our Conor Bambrick discusses climate justice and moving #NY away from fossil fuels to a 100% clean, renewable energy future at the #NYRenews #Albany town hall. #ActOnClimateNY

Denying the problem that is climate change is really just denying the fundamentals of science, and should no longer be socially acceptable. New York State needs to set an example for the rest of the country, and Binghamton needs to set an example for the rest of New York State. #ClimateAndCommunityProtectionAct #NYRenews #newyork

Proud to speak in front of so many fired up activists at the #NYRenews kick-off event tonight. The time is now for a more inclusive environmental movement, and the #NYRenews coalition is the next step in building a green justice economy. We are in the fight against climate change together. And tonight we have made a declaration to defeat this crisis together in a way that works for everyone. #NYRenews

Town Hall highlight was this young man singing Otis Redding ❤️An inspiring evening of community in action. #nyrenews

A world turned upside down. "Remember who's boss" says Mother Earth "Ashamed to be American! Sorry for asshole prez, wars, + carbon footprint." June 1, 2016 City Hall, NYC protesters lay down in disgust following the administration's claim to withdraw from the Paris Climate Agreement. Strangely, compliance to the agreement is voluntary and withdrawal cannot be finalized until a day after the next presidential election. Cities, states and municipalities around the United States vow to adhere or exceed targets set by the agreement. But the president continues to spew lies and damage relationships around the globe. #climatechange #nyrenews #350nyc #bronxclimatejustice #newyorkcommunitiesforchange @saneenergy @350org @350brooklyn @peoplesclimate @foodandwaterwatch @workingfamilies

Reflection on today's events. #impact #lobby #climatechange #nyrenews #inspire

“It’s rare that a campaign like this unites so many groups,” Bill Lipton, state director of the Working Families Party, said in a statement. “From upstate fracktivists to downstate environmental justice organizations, from community groups to labor groups to environmental and faith groups, New Yorkers are coming together to say that it is time for Albany to lead on climate.” #NYRenews #climatechange @maketheroadny #greenjobs

Thanks to the organizers at NY Renews and @pushbuffalo for this training! Like if you're for statewide solidarity and environmental justice! #nyrenews #ccpa

A victory? At today's protest outside the Harvard Club so many people showed up it overflowed the modest scrim the police set up. Great turnout from @foodandwaterwatch @seiu_org @350org @350brooklyn #nyrenews and others in the #climatechange watchdog contingency. All thanks for organizing this one @risenresistnyc ! Turnout was so big @epascottpruitt chickened out and canceled his talk, "The EPA After Paris." He said he was "sick." The thing that's really sick is his #climate change denying #science dismissing #tomfoolery . When you gonna work for the #americanpeople Scotty, instead of ALEC and the interests of the Koch brothers? #dogpruitt #denialontrial #publicinterest

As you know a few weeks ago I went up to Albany to lobby to have NY go fossil free by 2050 and to put some teeth into Cuomo's talk about NY being a climate leader. Today I urge you (if you live anywhere in NYState) to call State Senator Avella. Last night, thanks to our hard work, the Climate and Community Protection Act passed the New York State Assembly by a whopping 95-40 margin! But tomorrow is the last day of the legislative session, and it still needs to pass in the State Senate. Which means the bill's sponsor, Senator Tony Avella, will need to bring it up for a vote. I just called and they're hopeful, but they need to hear from you.
Can you call Senator Avella at 518-455-2210 and urge him to bring the Climate and Community Protection Act (S. 6617) to a vote before the end of session?

In the aftermath of Trump's disastrous withdrawal from the Paris Climate Accord, New Yorkers cannot wait another year to enact urgently needed climate and equity legislation. As our Assembly sponsor Steve Englebright put it: "It's the most important thing that we could possibly do and punting is not really called for. Action is called for. There is a crisis that our state and nation needed to deal with yesterday. So delaying is a very bad thing." We cannot let the Senate delay this bill. If it comes up for a vote, we believe we have the votes to pass it this year. So it's on us to flood Senator Avella's offices with calls today.

Take 2 minutes to call Senator Avella at 518-455-2210 and tell him New Yorkers cannot afford to delay, please bring this critical bill to a vote.

The more calls the better, so forward this to anyone and everyone who can help out. Don't worry if you're not a constituent---this bill is deeply relevant to all New Yorkers, and we all have a right to advocate with its sponsor.
It's time to get this bill across the finish line. Thank you so much for your help! @nyindivisible @350brooklyn @350org #organizebk #nyrenews @nysenate This photo "Climate Change Is Bigger Than You," was from the recent climate protest at City Hall after Trump pulled out of the Paris Accords. #climatechange #climatechangeisreal @peoplesclimate

"Pruitt, lap dog of the fossil fuel industry, gushes oil on an already burning planet." A protest poster/sign I made to picket Pruitt's talk "The EPA After Paris" at the Harvard Club, Wednesday June 21st at 11am - 2pm, 35 West 44th Street, NYC 10036. I hope you'll join me outside to make some NOISE! #protest #denialontrial #epa #riseandresistnyc @epascottpruitt @epagov @nyindivisible @350brooklyn @350org #organizebk #nyrenews @foodandwaterwatch #dogpruitt

The day after the current administration pulled out of the #parisagreement levels of CO2 peaked at nearly 410ppm, a new human era record at about 40-45% above pre-industrial norms. This is a level not seen for millions of years when no human walked the earth. Even if we stopped emitting carbon today the negative effects of this level of pollution will continue to accumulate. We've got to stop dumping carbon into the atmosphere now. If you live in New York State I urge you to contact your state senator. Find them at nysenate.gov and ask them to pass the CCPA, the Climate & Community Protection Act a bill to bring jobs, climate justice and get NY powered fossil free by 2050. Time to set a bulwark against The disaster in DC and rejoin the family of nations. Trump: Your refusal to lead on climate change will not Make America Great Again. But if you won’t help put us on track to a lower carbon future, the rest of us will have to do it without you. #nyrenews #climatechange #climatechangeisreal #co2 #CCPA @nysenaterepubs @nyrenews @350org @350brooklyn @nysenate #makeamericagreatagain

Pictures from today's press conference and #NYRenews lobby day, with #NYers sharing their personal stories of the impacts of #climatechange, and demanding that New York become a true #climateaction leader! @nynurses @weact4ej #nycommunitiesforchange @pushbuffalo #ActOnClimate @nysenaterepubs @nyassembly @nysa_majority @nygovcuomo

Take 30 seconds and listen to Eddie Bautista, Executive Director of New York City Environmental Justice Alliance. Eddie spoke earlier today during a press conference hosted by #NYRenews in favor of the A. 8270 "New York State Climate and Community Protection Act." You too can urge your elected officials to #ActOnClimate -> check out our website for "How to" videos and tips!

Better a little late than never. A few days after the administration pulled out from the #parisagreement more than 200 cities and 9 states across the US (with Puerto Rico, Washington DC and 10 other states also pledging to abide by the #parisaccord ), affirm the world's collective efforts to stem the tide of climate change and pledge further cooperation and commit to curb greenhouse gasses and move toward 100% clean energy -- thereby meeting or exceeding previous commitments made by the Obama administration. The nine states of the newly formed United States Climate Alliance is bipartisan and represents over 25% of the US population and over 30% of the US GDP. Here a near naked protester showed up late to the Rally and March Against Trump's Paris Exit at City Hall, NYC June 1, 2017. Hey, where's your helmet? #safetyfirst #hotties #climatechange #nyrenews #350nyc #bronxclimatejustice #newyorkcommunitiesforchange #unitesstatesclimatealliance @saneenergy @350org @350brooklyn @peoplesclimate @foodandwaterwatch @wfparty https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_Climate_Alliance Want to get your state to join the Climate Alliance? Go to www.parismystate.com #usclimatealliance update 6/6/17: 13 states have joined. The member states, which make up 31.4% of the U.S. population and 36.3% of U.S. GDP as of 2016, emitted 18.1% of U.S. carbon dioxide emissions in 2014.

What's the reason? There is no reason to the acts of the current administration. The laws of nature will be of consequence and we can act in deference to them or perish as a result. "Whether we sleep or wake, the vast machinery of the universe still goes on," wrote Thomas Paine, in The Age of Reason. Photographed June 1st 2017 in Thomas Paine Park at Foley Square, NYC during the Rally Against Trump's Paris Exit. #climatechange is real that's the reason. #denial #climatechange #nyrenews #350nyc #bronxclimatejustice #newyorkcommunitiesforchange @saneenergy @350org @350brooklyn @peoplesclimate @foodandwaterwatch @workingfamilies @nyrenews
