She Said It Out Loud ! – Governor Hochul “Buildings are the leading cause of greenhouse gas emissions in New York State, and we need to ramp up tangible solutions that decarbonize buildings faster to fight climate change,” This statement breaks new ground. Nationally, almost all attention to climate change solutions has focused on solar and wind (electricity generation) and electric vehicles. Until recently, given NY’s relatively clean electricity generation resources, it has been “obvious” to most observers that transportation is the most important sector for NY to clean up. However, our state’s Climate Law – the Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act – requires the appropriate accounting of methane leaks through the supply chain, meaning the heating sector is now co-equal with transportation as sectors needing immediate attention. Kudos Governor Hochul for telling it like it is !
