Sean Garren: N.Y. outshining Massachusetts on solar
Posted on November 19th Via the Berkshire Eagle
BOSTON — Earlier this year, New York lawmakers passed the “world’s most ambitious” climate and clean-energy legislation. The sweeping effort calls for the elimination of virtually all greenhouse gas emissions by 2050 and 100 percent carbon-free electricity by 2040. If the state manages to hit those targets, it would effectively create a net-zero economy. It is an ambitious plan, but it’s exactly the kind of bold, urgent action that the climate crisis demands, and Massachusetts has failed to enact.
