We cannot allow action because climate remains a deeply rooted political issue. Jurisdiction and business decision makers must work together to advance climate solutions that ensure a safe and healthy future for all Americans.
Ideally, investing more in clean energy would also reduce carbon pollution and promote innovation by:
- Create hundreds of thousands of new green work every year as we scale up wind, solar, carbon storage, transmission and other low carbon solutions
- Cleans the air by targeting methane pollution through Methane emission reduction plan
- Implement measures to encourage and invest in the country clean energy supply chainas well as sustainable production
- Increase equity and access to clean energy for lower income communities
Business can help lead and innovate new climate solutions, but we cannot achieve the scale of emissions reductions the world needs, nor can we guarantee a resilient energy future. , without government support and leadership.
While the Supreme Court has limited the EPA’s ability to fight climate change, Congress has a unique opportunity, in partnership with business and government, to help deliver the clean energy economy that we can. we need today. I call on Congress to act now during this narrow window of opportunity to create lasting change.
