AN ACT to amend the  environmental  conservation  law,  in  relation  to
  global warming pollution control

  THE  PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section 1. Legislative findings. Global warming poses a serious threat
to the economic well-being, public health, natural resources  and  envi-
ronment  of  New  York.  The potential adverse impacts of global warming
include the exacerbation of air quality problems,  a  reduction  in  the
quality and supply of water to the state, a rise in sea levels resulting
in the displacement of coastal businesses, residents and infrastructure,
damage to marine ecosystems and the natural environment, and an increase
in  the  incidences  of  infectious  diseases,  asthma,  and other human
health-related problems.  Global warming will have  detrimental  effects
on  some  of New York's largest industries, including agriculture, tour-
ism, skiing, recreational and commercial fishing and forestry.
  The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, awarded the 2007  Nobel
Peace Prize, determined that burning coal, oil and gas has led to higher
temperatures that are already impacting physical and biological systems.
The  panel also projected temperatures would rise more rapidly if green-
house gases are not abated. The panel concluded that reducing  emissions
80  percent  below  current  emissions  by mid-century would prevent the
worst impacts of global warming.
  National and international actions are necessary to fully address  the
issue  of  global  warming. Action taken by New York and other states to
reduce emissions of greenhouse gases will have far-reaching  effects  by
encouraging the federal government, and other countries to act including
encouraging  the  development of sustainable, non-polluting technologies
such as solar, wind, geothermal and ocean currents.
  S 2. Article 19 of the environmental conservation law  is  amended  by
adding a new title 13 to read as follows:
                                TITLE 13
                    GLOBAL WARMING POLLUTION CONTROL
