City Council preserved this land for history

The Feb. 5 story in the Watertown Daily Times — “Hochul’s all-electric building plan would ban gas stoves only in new builds” — should put to rest the false claims that all New Yorkers who cook with gas must soon cease to do so. Last year, fossil fuel companies and some real estate developers pushed these claims so aggressively that the All-Electric Building Act never made it to the floor for a vote.

This was unfortunate as the built environment generates 40% of annual global CO2 emissions; in New York, the figure is about 30%. However, we have a good chance of revisiting and successfully passing the legislation in this year’s session.
