However, the fossil fuel industry is fighting hard to maintain the status quo when it comes to emissions in New York by proposing insidious techno-”fixes” that let them stay relevant and keep making money while looking “green”. We’re hitting back. We just released a new report called False Solutions: How the Fossil Fuel Industry is Holding Back a Just transition.
