The Climate Can’t Wait

Day 8 of 10 Day Countdown to Comment Campaign

World leaders are meeting in Glasgow where fighting climate change is a top priority. After nine days of grand pronouncements, pledges and plans, scientists delivered a rude awakening to a COP26 summit that has been called “the last, best hope” for climate action: Earth is on track to warm about 2.5 degrees Celsius, exceeding the world’s shared climate goal by a full degree.

On the current warming trajectory, global sea levels will rise at least 2 feet, according to research from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.

Almost half of the world will face regular, life-threatening heat waves.

Humanity risks exceeding climate tipping points, triggering ice-sheet loss, permafrost thaw and ecosystem collapse from which there is no return.

If pledges are not boosted in the immediate future, humanity will lose its chance to limit warming to the 1.5 degrees Celsius (2.7 degrees Fahrenheit) —a target that scientists and vulnerable communities increasingly say the world cannot afford to miss.

New York State is the largest Bitcoin producing state in the US, burning fossil fuels and emitting greenhouse gases that will undermine our climate goals. We have a chance to do our part  by sending a message loud and clear to Governor Hochul: New York MUST be serious about climate change, and we MUST start with Greenidge's Title V Air Permit Renewal.
