Honk and Wave


Earlier this month about 25 community members and climate activists gathered in Clinton waving signs for a “Honk and Wave” thanking state Sen. Rachel May for co-sponsoring the CCIA. The CCIA would raise $10 to $15 billion per year over the next 10 years, paid for by a fee on corporate pollution. The money would invest in solutions that would quickly and equitably draw down New York’s emissions. The bill is estimated to create and sustain 150,000 jobs over the next decade. The rally was one of several across the state, during which organizers in Long Island, Ithaca, Albany, Westchester, Buffalo, and NYC called for the passage of the New York Climate and Community Investment Act.
