Solutions to address climate change are needed now. Sea turtles are losing their nesting beaches to rising seas. Warmer winters are driving up tick infestations that weaken and kill moose. Rampant carbon pollution is harming people through increased health problems and threats to property and livlihoods.
Following extensive conversations and hearings to examine tools, policies, and actions that reduce the carbon pollution driving climate change and design adaptive strategies, staff of the U.S. House of Representatives Select Committee on the Climate Crisis released a Climate Crisis Action Plan that calls on Congress to build a zero-carbon economy to meet the challenges of the climate crisis while centering environmental justice and valuing workers.
The new blueprint for action will help the U.S. economy achieve net zero carbon pollution by 2050, and net negative pollution thereafter — a goal necessary if we want to avoid the worst impacts of climate change.
Congress must address the climate crisis and make climate action a top priority. Urge your elected officials to protect people and wildlife by working to enact legislation that will adopt the policy recommendations of a key House Committee.
