Carbon Dioxide Hearings

From Environmental Advocates of New York:

Global Warming
New York’s climate, and that of the planet, has been warming over the past century, mainly due to increased concentrations of carbon dioxide in our atmosphere. Scientists believe that the higher levels of carbon dioxide (CO2)in our atmosphere are the result of human activities, principally the combustion of fossil fuels for energy.

The Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI) is a 10-state partnership to stabilize and reduce carbon dioxide emissions, one of the most abundant heat-trapping gases, from power plants. This program is an important first step to reduce the pollution that causes climate change.
