Green infrastructure & climate change
Climate change is real, it’s happening, and it’s already having devastating consequences on our way of life. From flooding to polar vortex cold snaps, real lives in New York and around the globe are at stake. Climate change is an imminent threat to our planet and our national security. Faced with an existential crisis of this magnitude, now is the time to act, and act boldly. We must take this opportunity to redesign and build our infrastructure, our transportation, our consumption, and even our financial investments.
The money, skills, and will are all available here in New York to solve this greatest of threats if we unleash the potential of all of the resources we have as a society and put them to work in clean-energy initiatives; carbon taxation; green jobs; institutional and private green investments; and easy-to-implement, everyday consumer solutions. It’s time for us to put our heads and hearts together to build a brighter future for all of us.
