Public from numerous states and multiple constituencies floods meeting to tell Delaware River Basin Commission to protect the river watershed with a ban
Trenton, NJ – A diverse array of over 30 New Jersey labor, faith, community and environmental organizations today announced the launch of a new coalition, Jersey Renews, to press current and future state leaders to increase dramatically New Jersey’s commitment to fighting climate change. They released a statement at a State House press conference calling for action by the state in a number of areas.
Climate change poses a massive threat to our state, yet strong actions to counter it offer an opportunity to prepare New Jersey for the future by cutting greenhouse gas emissions, reducing dangerous deadly air pollution, moving toward a truly clean energy future, and creating and securing good, family-sustaining clean energy and green infrastructure jobs.
On Wednesday, January 25th, the founding partners of Jersey Renews will be speaking at the State House about the urgency of climate change and the importance of action by our state’s current and future leaders. As part of our public launch, we will be discussing the key components of our policy platform created to reduce emissions, bolster clean energy, and create green jobs.
