The sanctity of our environment

In a letter to the editor of the Times Union last Saturday, Sister Doreen Glynn, CSJ urged the voters and the governor of New York State to take action on the important issue of climate change.


Gov. Andrew Cuomo can deny authorization for new gas plants and gas infrastructure, such as Danskammer power plant in Newburgh, and to adopt the Advanced Clean Truck rule to mandate targets for electrifying truck fleets.


Voters can support a proposed state constitutional amendment stating that “each person shall have the right to clean air and water, and a healthful environment.”
