A statement from Tom Gilbert, campaign director for New Jersey Conservation Foundation and ReThink Energy NJ

On Thursday, May 23, New Jersey legislature passed a bipartisan bill that requires the state’s Department of Environmental Protection to set benchmarks for reducing emissions and adopt measures to ensure we meet them.

May 23, 2019 — “We applaud the Legislature for taking strong action to adopt concrete steps with clear deadlines to reduce greenhouse gas emissions under the Global Warming Response Act. This couldn’t be more urgent given the looming threat of climate change and the failure of the Trump Administration to address this crisis.”—Tom Gilbert, campaign director New Jersey Conservation Foundation and ReThink Energy NJ
