Investing in the future: de Blasio, Schumer announce climate change facility competition on Governors Island

New York City is set to be at the forefront of climate research with the launch of a new facility on Governors Island on Monday dedicated to finding scientific solutions to climate change.

On Monday afternoon, Mayor Bill de Blasio, Congress Member Jerry Nadler, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and state Senator Brian Kavanagh took a scenic ferry ride to Governors Island; however, this trip was not dedicated to recreation at the 172-acres of green space but rather investing in the Big Apple’s future through climate research.
