September 28, 2015- A press release from Albany states, “Governor Cuomo announced the installation of the “Cool Globes” exhibit in Battery Park City, which will run through November 20. The public art exhibition aims to raise awareness of and inspire exhibit viewers to take actions on climate change.
“As we continue to face some of the most severe weather events in our history, we must reduce, mitigate and adapt to the effects of this new normal,”Governor Cuomo said. ”I encourage New Yorkers to visit this exhibition and learn more about what you can do to help combat climate change.”
The exhibition, which is sponsored by Cool Globes, Inc., features 12 globe sculptures, each with a message on how both the public and businesses can help reduce and mitigate climate change every day through actions such as increasing energy efficiency in homes and businesses, purchasing products made with 100-percent post-consumer material, increasing recycling and greening urban landscapes.
The announcement is in recognition of Climate Week, which Governor Cuomo proclaimed from September 22-29 to raise awareness about the challenges we face with a changing climate and to highlight New York’s actions to increase resiliency and curb emissions as global leaders meet in New York City this week.”
