Climate Change

“Climate change is real, and it is here.  The time to act is now.”

After Super Storm Sandy , the effects of climate change are clearer than ever.  We will continue to see more severe storms.  Yetta Kurland has been committed to protecting the environment.

In New York , a key place to start is opposing the misguided efforts to open our state to hydrofracking.  On the Lower West Side , Yetta has vigorously opposed the Spectra gas pipeline in courtrooms and in the street.  In the City Council, Yetta will continue that fight.

During the storm, the dangers of putting too much of our city’s resources on our waterfront was laid bare.  Yetta will work to see that our city – from NYCHA to our hospitals to sanitation to the MTA – are prepared for inevitable effects of climate change on New Yorkers.
