New York Green New Deal Page

On January 15, 2019 New York State Governor Andrew M. Cuomo did his State of the State Address and it included his version of the environmental agenda’s Green New Deal. The announcement was necessarily vague but there was enough information to determine this will be an issue.

This page lists my posts relative to this plan. I recommend this Summary post for an overview. I have separated other posts on the Green New Deal into two sections. The Announcement section includes posts that describe components of the announcement for the program and my initial impressions. It is not very detailed because there are few details in the announcement. The Analysis section includes posts that are more detailed evaluations of the Green New Deal. I believe that the Governor and advocates for this agenda need to explain how it will work, how much it will cost and how much it will affect global warming and these posts evaluate those aspects of the program.  I will add posts here as more detailed proposals are produced by the State.

I have been involved in New York energy and environmental policy since 1981. Before retirement from a non-regulated generating company, I was actively analyzing air quality regulations that could affect company operations and energy policies related to operations. The opinions expressed in this post do not reflect the position of any of my previous employers or any other company I have been associated with, these comments are mine alone.
