Far Hills, NJ (June 1, 2017) – Tom Gilbert, Campaign Director, New Jersey Conservation Foundation and ReThink Energy NJ:
“Facts matter. Withdrawing from the landmark Paris climate accord ignores undeniable scientific evidence and overwhelming public support for addressing climate change. As a coastal state, New Jersey will suffer increasingly severe consequences of rising seas and harsh weather.
Now, more than ever, states need to take this matter into their own hands and use their significant authority to rapidly transition to clean, efficient, renewable energy.
The next Governor of New Jersey should rejoin the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI) and act aggressively to move the state more quickly to adopt renewable sources of energy.”
