Happening Now

Earlier this week, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), the United Nations’ scientific panel established to guide world leaders on climate change issues, released a report. And it’s not good news.

According to these climate experts from more than 195 countries, we have 12 years before we hit a tipping point with no return – meaning, 12 years to move our economies from fossil fuels to renewable energy. As a society, we have made unthinkable leaps before. It’s time to dig in--there is no going back and there is no backing down. We need to raise our standards and expectations about what our leaders can and should do on our behalf.

This is our moment to shine. Right here in New York, we can pass the Climate & Community Protection Act and get our state on the path to 100% renewable energy.  Join us this Saturday, October 13, in New York City for an in-person 100% renewable energy campaign training. Register here.

The Catskills' hemlock trees are a foundation species for the forests' unique ecosystem. The hemlocks are beautiful and strong, providing homes for animals and shade to keep our streams cool enough for trout and other fish native to our area. Without the hemlocks, New York State would be a different place entirely, and right now these these amazing trees are threatened by a voracious invasive insect called the Hemlock Woolly Adelgid (HWA). Watch our new video to learn more.

New York's dairies are under attack. It's been an awful couple of years for the dairy industry--milk sales are down, output is up, and there's a huge glut of milk on the market creating the low milk prices that are driving farms out of business. With the recent announcement that Walmart's supplier is canceling contracts with local farms and processors in order to open its own mega-processing facility in Indiana to bottle 100 million gallons of milk per year, things have gotten dire.
