REV Inconvenient Facts

Reforming the Energy Vision (REV) is Governor Cuomo’s plan to “rebuild, strengthen and modernize New York’s energy system. The ultimate goal of REV is to change the energy system of New York to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions 80% from 1990 levels by 2050 (“80 by 50”). This is an enormous effort so the rest of this blog covers background information about the many components of the program. This page lists the blog posts that describe my concerns about the inconvenient facts buried in those programs.
