New Yorkers Responding to Climate Change with Fred Stoss
Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed the Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act (CLCPA) in the summer of 2019. CLCPA is the most robust, comprehensive, and environmental and economical responsible legislation in the country. Every day we see increased evidence that we live in a greenhouse gas-constrained world. This program reflects on how we got to this point and briefly discusses the causes, effects, and solutions to global climate change.
