Climate Activists Turn Up the Heat on NY Gov. Cuomo With Sit-In

Andrea Germanos, staff writer

Dozens of young New Yorkers on Wednesday are occupying the Manhattan office of Gov. Andrew Cuomo to demand he reject fossil fuel money.

"We're here fighting for the people that we love and the places we call home," said one of the activists with the Sunrise Movement, the youth-led group behind the action.

Not sure I get this. Cuomo is one of the best governors in the country on climate change policy. Why don’t they protest against governors who are doing little or nothing. These young people should be supporting Cuomo’s efforts. He needs all the political support he can get. Of course they should also urge him to move even faster to address climate change.

I would rather see these young people use their energy to campaign for Nixon, who will fight for many more issues for the working class than Cuomo.
