  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
