Attorney General, Mayor's Office To Hold Clean Power Plan "People's Hearing" In New York On January 9th

With Trump EPA Ignoring AG Schneiderman's Request for Public Hearings in NY, Hearing Gives New Yorkers Chance to Make Their Voices Heard on Proposed Repeal

New Yorkers Are Encouraged to Testify or Submit Testimony on Importance of the Clean Power Plan in Combating Climate Change

With the Trump administration ignoring Attorney General Eric Schneiderman's request that the EPA hold public hearings in New York on the proposed repeal of the Clean Power Plan, the Attorney General's and NYC Mayor's offices will hold a "people's hearing" on January 9th to ensure New Yorkers' voices are heard.

New Yorkers are on the front lines of climate change, as tragically demonstrated by Hurricanes Sandy and Irene. The country's reliance on dirty, non-renewable fossil fuels for power generation is a major contributor of climate change pollution and its impacts on the lives and livelihoods of New York's residents, including more frequent and intense storms, rising sea levels, higher temperatures, and increased air pollution. The Clean Power Plan is a vital tool to slash greenhouse gas emissions from one of the leading causes of climate change pollution, fossil-fuel burning power plants. EPA has refused to schedule any public hearings east of West Virginia, despite the direct climate impacts facing residents of New York and other states on the eastern seaboard.

New Yorkers are encouraged to sign up to testify and/or submit testimony on the Trump Administration's proposal to scrap the Clean Power Plan. Testimony will be compiled and submitted to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) ahead of the January 16, 2018 deadline for comments.

The hearing will be held in in partnership with Councilmember Costa Constantinides and The New School, and co-sponsored by a number of New York organizations.

Attorney General Schneiderman leads a coalition of states and localities including New York City that is legally defending the Clean Power Plan.
