More than 220,000 electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles are on America’s roads today, delivering real benefits for our health and our environment. Electric vehicles could prevent more than 1,758,000 million metric tons of climate-changing carbon pollution annually in New York by 2025. That’s the equivalent of saving more than 197,817,000 gallons of gasoline per year, or eliminating tailpipe pollution from 370,000 of today’s cars and trucks.

Bee Killing Pesticides Found in 51% 'Bee Friendly' labeled Plants

Bees and other pollinators, essential for the two-thirds of the food crops humans eat every day, are in decline in countries around the world.  36 out of 71 (51 percent) of garden plant samples purchased at top garden retailers--such as Lowes, Home Debot, and Walmart--- in 18 cities in the United States and Canada contain neonicotinoid (neonic) pesticides -- a key contributor to recent bee declines. Some of the flowers contained neonic levels high enough to kill bees outright assuming comparable concentrations are present in the flowers' pollen and nectar.
