NJ LEAGUE OF CONSERVATION VOTERS STATEMENT ENCOURAGING BPU AND DEP TO IMPLEMENT GOALS OF GLOBAL RESPONSE ACT
“We must continue to fight to reduce the harmful pollution created by burning fossil fuels,” said Ed Potosnak, Executive Director, New Jersey League of Conservation Voters. “Governor Murphy has been a bold leader in advancing policies to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions, but we only have 10 years to curtail the worst impacts of climate change. We urge the BPU and DEP to act swiftly to implement the goals of the Global Warming Response Act (GWRA) and to set a strong 45% emissions reductions benchmark by 2030, which is aligned with the IPCC. We can’t wait until 2050. The time to act is now!”
