Safeguarding the Environment

The climate crisis is the existential challenge of our moment. We must be bold.

There is no challenge facing our city, our country, and our world as urgent or as grave as that of climate change. New Yorkers have already weathered some of the consequences of our warming planet, with increasing average temperatures, heavy rainfall events that paralyze our city’s public transit systems, and storm surges–like that of Hurricane Sandy–that caused billions of dollars worth of damage and cost 44 New Yorkers their lives.

When it comes to climate change, our response must meet the moment. Jerry believes that the only way to confront a problem this immense is with a solution equally big and bold. That’s why he was an original co-sponsor of the Green New Deal, which would reduce greenhouse gas emissions, invest in renewable and zero-emissions power sources, and create future-facing, high-paying jobs. We can’t pass this crisis onto the next generation–Jerry knows that we need to act now, and we need to act with conviction.
