There is no doubt that addressing the threat of global warming is one of the biggest challenges of our generation.
Having just enjoyed Independence Day, it is fitting that Congress has just taken a major step in declaring our nation’s independence from the fossil fuels that are responsible for causing global warming.
Now the time for real leadership from Congress in the fight to stop the worst impacts of global warming. For example, here in Colorado, without quick action to address global warming, we can expect to see increased heat waves and crop failures.
Passing strong energy legislation through the U.S. Congress is critical to rebuilding our economy and protecting the environment.
I applaud Rep. Markey for her recent vote in support of the American Clean Energy and Security Act (H.R. 2454). Now it is time for Senators Udall and Bennett to work to strengthen and pass this bill as it moves through the Senate.
