Governor should lead by example with climate change

Gov. Cuomo is quick to announce climate change is real and not be wished away by rhetoric or denial.

The Governor should follow his own rhetoric. He may be one of the largest individual consumer of fossil fuel in the state. His numerous trips, be it by plane or helicopter, to different states and countries use massive amounts of fossil fuel. This all to forge his dreams of a future presidential run.

The Governor could care less about the climate change if it impacts his lifestyle. I just wonder how large his carbon footprint is?

If he was truly concerned about climate changes, he would lead by example. Judging by the continual decline in state population, his policies and vision has helped lower New York’s carbon footprint. He has aggressively fought climate change by forcing people to leave the state.
