Climate change is the most urgent issue of our time. The last five years have been the hottest in recorded history, and a warming planet has dire consequences. Climate change causes extreme weather — bringing more intense and frequent heat waves, severe droughts, heavier rainfall, dangerous flooding, and outbreaks of deadly disease.
Burning fossil fuels is a leading contributor to climate change, and the oil and gas industry has known this for decades. Yet, instead of alerting the world to these dangers and curbing fossil fuel extraction, they used hot-wired lobbyists and campaign contributions to bamboozle the public and undermine action.
Experts have said that the best way to curb global warming is to leave fossil fuels in the ground. In 2014, New York banned hydraulic fracturing (fracking) for natural gas; a courageous decision to combat climate change. That decision should have been a turning point in the fight against global warming. The state could have begun to make rapid transitions and investments into energy efficiency and renewable energy. However, New York has allowed new fossil fuel projects including: oil and gas pipelines, storage facilities, gas compressor stations, and gas-electric conversion plants.
New York cannot break its addiction to fossil fuels and move to a renewable future by permitting new infrastructure that will lock us into decades of fossil fuel use.
TAKE ACTION TODAY! Call Governor Cuomo today to urge him to use the State’s powers to deny permits, Water Quality Certifications, or other regulatory approvals for transmission pipelines, power generating plants, compressor stations, and fossil fuel infrastructure projects that are environmental hazards and would perpetuate New York’s dependence on burning natural gas, coal, and oil for energy generation. Tell the Governor: No more fossil fuel infrastructure!

With climate deniers firmly in control of national policies, it will be up to the states to hold corporate polluters accountable. The Office of the New York State Attorney General is currently leading an investigation into whether the oil industry misled investors, regulators and the public about climate change and thwarted efforts that would curb emissions of greenhouse gases.
Oil and Gas corporations must tell the public and their shareholders the truth about their role in accelerating the pace of climate change. The Office of the New York State Attorney General is one of the last checks on the immense power of the Oil and Gas industry. This is a David vs. Goliath issue, and it will shape the planet for years and decades to come. Join us in urging the Attorney General to pursue the investigation to the fullest extent of the law.
