WGXC Morning Show: Raya Salta, Barry Pendegrass, Issac Silberman-Gorn, Michael Richardson, Laura Faulk, Margaret Human (Audio)
Three and a half years after NYS passed the CLCPA climate law, the Climate Action Council held a meeting on December 5 to review the wording of the state climate scoping plan which is to be voted upon Dec. 19. The state however has refused to make public the draft plan. Groups such as NY Renews, Green Faith and PAUSE rallied outside the council meeting in support of strong action. One major issue is that the state is proposing a version of the controversial "cap-and-trade" program to reduce emissions and raise revenues. Debate also continues over the state's promotion of hydrogen and some false climate solutions, as well as the timeline to stop new buildings from using gas. we hear from Raya Salta, Barry Pendegrass, Issac Silberman-Gorn, Michael Richardson, Laura Faulk, and Margaret Human. By WOOC's Mark Dunlea.
