Mark Dunlea is running on the Green Party line. He says his main focus is to confront climate change by divesting the state pension funds from fossil fuels.

“Fossil fuels are destroying the planet,” Dunlea said. “I believe climate change is the greatest threat to humanity. For the last five years, I have helped coordinate the statewide campaign with 350.org to divest pension funds from fossil fuels. Worldwide we have managed to divest from 700 institutions, about $6 trillion. We have managed to get the New York City Pension Fund to divest. “

Dunlea will challenge Democratic incumbent Thomas DiNapoli and Republican Jonathan Trichter in November.

DiNapoli plans to visit Utica on Friday to release an economic profile of the six-county Mohawk Valley region. He’ll be at Utica College’s Carbone Family Auditorium at 11 a.m.
