Green Party NY Calls for Massive Investment in Renewables As Obama Visits GE’s Schenectady Facility

The Green Party of New York State called on President Obama to commit to a massive investment in renewable energy and for the United States to go carbon-free by 2020. President Obama’s visit to GE’s Schenectady, NY plant to tour its renewable energy department reminds us that the administration has paid little more than lip service to renewables over the last two years. The Greens called on President Obama to use his visit to GE, one of the nation’s largest defense contractors, to end the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, and to redirect the military budget to providing living wage, green-energy jobs to the millions of unemployed Americans.
