  Section 1. Legislative findings and declaration. The legislature here-
by  enacts the "New York state climate and community protection act" and
finds and declares that:
  1. Climate change is adversely affecting economic  well-being,  public
health,  natural resources, and the environment of New York. The adverse
impacts of climate change include:
  a. an increase in  the  severity  and  frequency  of  extreme  weather
events, such as storms, flooding, and heat waves, which can cause direct
injury  or  death, property damage, and ecological damage (e.g., through
the release of hazardous substances into the environment);
  b. rising sea levels, which exacerbate damage from  storm  surges  and
flooding,  contribute  to  coastal  erosion and saltwater intrusion, and
inundate low-lying areas, leading to the displacement of  or  damage  to
coastal habitat, property, and infrastructure;

 EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                      [ ] is old law to be omitted.
