Gov. Andrew Cuomo this past Wednesday ordered the state Department of Public Service, which oversees utilities, to “design and enact” regulations mandating that the state generate half of its electricity from renewable sources by 2030.July  NY Times Square  The announcement comes two days into the month-long COP21 climate conference in Paris, where world leaders are negotiating a deal to drastically reduce carbon emissions before the planet warms past a point that human society can sustain.  “Climate change is one of the defining issues of our time, and we must act now,” Cuomo said in a statement. “As discussions continue in Paris, we are taking real, enforceable actions in New York to lay the foundation for a thriving clean energy economy.”
