June 22, 2014: Sen. Griffo, Blair Horner, Dr. Robert Howarth

Sen. Joseph Griffo (R – Utica) has the latest on items that have to be negotiated before the session concludes. The Senate will be back in Albany on Tuesday.

Blair Horner, NYPIRG’s Legislative Director, explains a report on Gov. Cuomo’s “Reforming the Energy Vision” (REV) initiative, which shows that public input will be key to the initiative’s success.

We explore updated research by Cornell University that shows methane emissions, particularly those from shale gas, have large greenhouse gas consequences. We host Robert Howarth, Cornell’s David R. Atkinson Professor of Ecology and Environmental Biology, to discuss the analysis he compiled with his fellow Cornell professor Anthony Ingraffea. Howarth argues that we must reduce natural gas usage to avoid runaway climate change.
