Trump administration's 'alternative climate plan' is 'worse than doing nothing,' new study finds. (This seems like the most apt headline for everything he does)

This study--which showed that 2/3 of carbon emissions can be traced to a few dozen companies--was one of the most downloaded academic papers of 2018. Thanks to good scientists, reality is getting through

Crucial new report: U.S. expanding oil and gas production faster than anywhere on earth. We have--mathematically--to Keep It In the Ground .

But now each of these dozens of agencies will have to go through the process. Given New York's byzantine politics, it will doubtless take a while, but the activists who have been pushing for this, and the governor's staff, deserve real credit. 5/5

This is not as big as the $200 billion state pension fund under the intractable state comptroller's grip, but it's not small either: in total, about $40 billion 3/5

But today governor Cuomo announced that a separate group of entities--"authorities" like the Transit Authority and the State Insurance Fund--will have to "commence a process to review and evaluate the feasibility and appropriateness of divesting from fossil fuels." 2/5

I'm no genius (and never will be), but I know enough to know it's not okay to invest in fossil fuels
