WASHINGTON, D.C. (July 23, 2019) — The U.S. House Energy and Commerce Committee’s bold new plan for confronting climate change and addressing its impacts on frontline communities and wildlife alike exemplifies the leadership the nation needs. The legislative plan and series of hearings will examine and put forward solutions that ensure all communities benefit from the transition to zero-carbon energy and transportation.
“These leaders are right to press for a national goal of no net climate pollution by mid-century at the latest. Climate change is an existential threat to wildlife, people, and the drinking water, clean air, and food we need. This bold plan from Chairman Pallone and Congressmen Tonko and Rush are what we need from lawmakers to shape solutions as big as the problems we face,” said Laura Daniel Davis, vice president for conservation strategy at the National Wildlife Federation. “This approach also rightly focuses on solutions that ensure no communities are left behind in the transition to a comprehensive best-of-the-above energy strategy.”
