Even as the growing climate crisis clearly shows that we need to drastically reduce our reliance coal, natural gas, and oil, the fossil fuel industry continues to push new projects. With the Clean Energy Standard, New York has committed to an ambitious goal of transitioning 50 percent of New York's electricity to renewable energy sources by 2030. To get there, we need to support the development of renewable resources, NOT expand our reliance on fossil fuels.
CLP fights the development of fossil fuel infrastructure in New York by participating directly in campaigns and by supporting partner organizations who are leading the charge.
