On Tuesday, April 16th at 10:00 am, there will be a press conference kicking off Renewable Energy Week aimed at telling Gov. Cuomo “Let’s Turn, Not Burn.” The conference will be held at the Buffalo waterfront at Dug’s Dive, 1111 Fuhrmann Boulevard, Buffalo, New York. It kicks off Sierra Club’s Renewable Energy Week, which includes events across the state and a robust advertising campaign in Buffalo, Rochester, Binghamton, Auburn and Albany calling on Governor Cuomo to take administrative action to create jobs and grow the economy with renewable energy sources such as wind and solar power.

Prof. Robert Howarth has co-authored a recent paper with Mark Jacobson of Stanford University and Anthony Ingraffea of Cornell on how NYS could be powered by renewable energy completely (solar, wind and water power) by 2030. He also authored the study of how methane obtained from hydrofracking and horizontal drilling is a dirtier greenhouse gas than coal or oil emissions.
