NYPIRG’s Statewide Clean Energy Bike Tour, rally 10/17

1 Comment

NYPIRG is holding a “Clean Energy Bike Tour” to promote emissions reductions in NY State. The tour starts at Stony Brook University and ends in Albany. If you are around campus at noon on 10/17, please stop by the DEC Building and attend their rally. They are simply looking for people to support their cause, and I think most of us do support the mission to reduce global greenhouse gas emissions. Their goal is to urge NY State to become a leader in this cause by reducing emissions by 80% by 2050. NYPIRG has helped in other environmental issues such as passing of the “Bottle Bill” which led to an increase in annual recycling efforts, and reduction of mercury emissions from coal burning plants by 2015. Hopefully this ride and the associated rallies will also have a positive effect.
