Washington, DC — As the U.S. Senate Committee on Environment and Public works considers a bill aimed at carbon removal strategies, Collin O’Mara, president and CEO of the National Wildlife Federation said:
“We need to leverage every possible tool and technology to lessen climate impacts that are bearing down on people and wildlife, from catastrophic megafires to severe weather. To give ourselves the best chance to stabilize the climate, it’s essential to invest now in both natural solutions and technologies that can remove, store and reuse the carbon fueling climate change, so that we can protect our natural resources and wildlife for future generations. That’s why the National Wildlife Federation has joined the Carbon Capture Coalition to work with a diverse group of stakeholders seeking to advance carbon removal strategies that are good for our natural resources and workers alike. The leadership from Senators Barrasso and Whitehouse on bills like the USE It Act (S. 383) represents the bipartisan progress we need to advance technology for mid-century climate goals.”
