350 Action and Bill McKibben Respond to Cynthia Nixon’s Climate Platform

May Boeve, 350 Action Executive Director, gave the following response:

“2018 is the year to say “enough is enough” to to the fossil fuel industry. We expect elected officials at all levels to be rejecting new fossil fuel projects, refusing fossil fuel money, and jump starting a just and equitable transition to 100% renewable energy. Our movement has pushed New York to a place of global leadership by banning fracking and divesting from fossil fuels. We applaud Cynthia Nixon’s plan to build on these hard-fought movement victories by moving us closer to a fossil free world that works for all of us.”
