Our climate challenged planet desperately needs a 21st century, low-polluting, decarbonized energy system.
Steve Cohen, Author at State of the Planet
No matter how many people within the organization are committed to environmental sustainability, the commitment at the top is essential.
With enlightened design, sustainability management and cutting-edge technology we can harness human ingenuity to the practical problems of environmentally sustainable economic development.
It’s not clear what might place climate adaptation on our national agenda, but it’s less costly to anticipate and avoid disaster than recover from it.
In the blue-red political world we’ve created we need to remember the values we share and our interdependency.
I believe we are entering the decade when humankind will firmly pivot in the direction of sustainability.

It is the leadership that we are seeing from New York’s government and institutions today that will help ensure that the cost structure of New York City’s energy will be able to compete with enlightened cities around the globe.
I remain optimistic about the technologies of renewable energy and the economic opportunities presented by our need to decarbonize and modernize our energy system.
