Chuck has always believed that we owe it to our children and grandchildren to preserve and protect our natural resources. In New York, Chuck has been a champion for our many natural treasures from the Great Lakes to the beaches of Long Island, the Adirondacks to our urban parks, as well as our lakes and reservoirs. He has teamed up with the Sierra Club and clean air and water groups across the state to pass landmark legislation, believes we must strengthen the Superfund clean-up program, and has a lifetime ‘A’ rating from the League of Conservation Voters. Chuck believes that we must address the increasingly devastating effects of climate change before they wreak irreversible damage on our environment and atmosphere.
