Central New York residents are rallying against what they call President-elect Donald Trump's anti-climate agenda.

Several groups, including Central New York Citizens in Action, are calling on Governor Andrew Cuomo to take Trump on.

Jamie Dangler, Vice President for Academics at United University Professions, says they're asking the Governor to include the Climate and Community Protection Act in his 2017 budget proposal.

Dangler says the legislation would move New York ahead as a leader on the issue of climate change and is the key to developing a clean energy economy.

The coalition is urging people to contact Governor Cuomo as soon as possible to ensure that his upcoming state budget includes the Climate and Community Protection Act.

Seven events were held across the state today to address climate change, including one at the Utica Public Library.
