Nick Reisman reports for New York State of Politics that while world leaders are deciding not to take too many big steps to slow global warming at the Glasgow Climate Change Conference, New York is taking small steps.

"With the fate of the planet at stake, New York must continue to lead the way in the global fight against the climate crisis," Hochul said.
