WASHINGTON, D.C. — Congress can swiftly reduce carbon emissions, create good jobs, and address environmental injustices by investing in clean energy and natural solutions, according to a new report from the U.S. Senate Democrats’ Special Committee on the Climate Crisis. The National Wildlife Federation heralded this investment and standards approach and urged lawmakers to enact its recommendations, as well as those of the recent report from the House Select Committee on the Climate Crisis.
“As we face interconnected public health, economic, climate, and systemic racism crises, our nation desperately needs to make strategic investments that create good jobs, reduce pollution, strengthen communities, and create a more just society,” said Collin O’Mara, president and CEO of the National Wildlife Federation. “The solutions offered by the Senate Special Committee on the Climate Crisis offer a roadmap to put millions of Americans to work revitalizing communities, deploying clean energy, and restoring natural resources—all of which will ensure a healthier and more equitable future for people and wildlife alike.”
