Sign that reads: Break free from fossil fuels

This week, NYLPI was one of the original signatories on a letter urging Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer to not buy into expanding hydrogen-based technologies in infrastructure packages. The letter urges the leaders to reject the push for hydrogen-based technologies largely backed by fossil fuel industries. The letter underlines the need for clean energy while outlining why hydrogen will only lead to more dirty energy.

Anthony Rogers-Wright, Director of NYLPI’s Environmental Justice program, commented:
