Combating Climate Change

The climate crisis is one of the greatest challenges of our lifetime, and it is long past time that we aggressively tackle it.  We are committed to fighting to significantly reduce climate pollution, create a clean energy future that produces millions of good-paying American jobs, and prioritize the needs of environmental justice communities.

 

  • Committee leaders introduce the CLEAN Future Act to aggressively tackle the climate crisis this decade and achieve net zero greenhouse gas pollution: The CLEAN Future Act was introduced on March 2, 2021, and would achieve net zero greenhouse gas pollution no later than 2050, with an interim target of reducing pollution by 50 percent from 2005 levels no later than 2030.  

 

  • Held legislative hearings on the CLEAN Future Act as the Committee prepares to act on climate: These hearings examined how the CLEAN Future Act will be a job creator and how it can modernize our power sector to make it cleaner, more reliable, and more resilient.
