Tuesday, June 30 – Today, the House Select Committee on the Climate Crisis released a landmark report on the need for aggressive action by Congress to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. After providing detailed input and consultation for the report, Clean Air Task Force welcomes the release.
“Decarbonizing the US economy by midcentury will require technology-inclusive incentives coupled with aggressive climate policies that can be enacted as soon as possible. Now, Congress has a roadmap to design and pass strong climate legislation,” said Lindsey Griffith, Federal Policy Director for Clean Air Task Force.
“Today’s report lays out how Congress can act – to embrace a full suite of innovative technologies for mitigation, and to commit to aggressive actions that will put the United States back in a global leadership position on climate change, including strong measures to control super pollutants such as methane and black carbon,” said Conrad Schneider, Advocacy Director for the Clean Air Task Force. “But today is just the beginning. Clean Air Task Force looks forward to working with the committees of jurisdiction as they work to enact this ambitious agenda,” he said.
