No More All of the Above Energy Plans!

From the

by Jessica Azulay

On January 7, 2014, the New York State Energy Planning Board released the 2014 draft New York State Energy Plan. The state releases an Energy Plan every four years to map out New York’s energy future. Unfortunately, the 2014 Draft State Energy Plan does not represent the sea-change in energy policy that New York needs to confront the global climate crisis, mounting pollution, public health concerns, or energy affordability.

A Better Government is Possible: Women Leading the Way in Left Electoral Success

From the

by Ursula Rozum

As the planet burns, inequality accelerates and political elites slash public budgets, it should be no surprise that new political forces are emerging to challenge the status quo and provide solutions to today’s largest crises. Activists often disagree on whether participating in elections is a worthy use of our limited resources and energy.  Regardless of your attitude towards elections, the recent, high profile electoral success of women who clearly identify with the political left can give us  hope that a different kind of politics is possible.

New York 2014 Draft State Energy Plan Hearing

Thu, Mar 6, 2014 11:00am
Syracuse SUNY College of Environment Science and Forestry (ESF)

In January, the New York Energy Planning Board released the long-awaited draft State Energy Plan. The draft plan sets a goal for 80% greenhouse-gas reductions by 2050, but has very few details on how state policy-makers plan to achieve that goal.

Maffei and the Ongoing Bank Bailouts

From the

by Howie Hawkins

Dan Maffei’s first TV campaign ad in 2012 proclaimed, “Dan Maffei opposed the Wall Street bailout.” But it wasn’t true. I knew that well as Maffei’s Green Party opponent in the 2008 election. On the eve of the first House vote on the $700 billion Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP), the Post-Standard published statements by all three of us running for Congress in that race: “Maffei, Sweetland back bailout; Hawkins says investors, not the taxpayers, should eat the losses” (Sept. 26, 2008).
