Climate Justice

Climate Justice

There is no Planet B. Robin is aware that none of the other plans or goals to which we aspire are possible without ensuring a livable world for ourselves, our children, and future generations. Robin is committed to prioritizing investment in scientifically-vetted solutions to reverse the damage human activity has caused. She will fight for environmental justice in communities here at home and around the country. 

Robin fully supports the aspirational Green New Deal, which addresses sustainability and climate change from an environmental justice standpoint, as well as concrete steps advocated in Drawdown and the Green New Deal for Housing Act. We need bold political leadership that will not settle for ineffective solutions, such as the Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act, a deeply flawed and partisan bill that is revenue neutral; meaning no funding to provide for infrastructure and systems improvements.

We need to be bold, it’s okay to tax polluters. 

Robin supports Carbon Price and Investment, a means by which to direct money more thoughtfully to communities of color already bearing the brunt of polluting facilities. As the Nation magazine touted in 2016, This “price-and-invest” model, in other words, takes money from the polluters and gives it back to those they have harmed. The money is invested in clean-energy and clean-transportation projects, with three important results: improving community health, creating new green jobs for residents, and reducing carbon in the atmosphere.”

While on the Brighton Town Board, Robin’s support and advocacy help pass enabling local to implement  Community Choice Aggregation (CCA). Robin took leadership in Brighton, partnering with several municipalities to pool their purchasing power to request CCA administration, allowing them to procure power on behalf of their residents, and businesses from alternative sources – paving the way for a 100% renewable default energy product for residential and small-business utility customers in those municipalities. The partnership represents one of the largest collaborative CCA efforts in New York State outside of Westchester County, encompassing potentially over 50,000 utility customers. 

Additional measures Robin will advocate for in Congress:

  • Immediate application of carbon taxes at the source
  • Incentivize transition to 100% renewable energy by 2028
  • Climate Change & Sustainability Solutions: www.drawdown.org
  • Full funding and competent leadership for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency
  • Protecting National Parks and expanding protected wildlife habitats
  • Cleanup of water, soil, and air in communities hardest hit by pollution, funded by polluters
