House Lawmakers Unveil Climate Change Plan

House Speaker claims it will save the planet.

Members of the House of Representatives unveiled a 500-plus page report detailing plans to address climate change that was put together by the House’s Select Committee on the Climate Crisis.

The plan calls for putting a price on carbon dioxide pollution, getting rid of pollution from cars by 2035 and from power plants by 2040, and achieving net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050.

“It will be a fight as long as it needs to be,” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said. “We will turn this report into law, saving the planet. … The climate crisis is the essential crisis of our time.”

“We are releasing a transformative road map for solving the climate crisis,” said Representative Kathy Castor of Florida, chairman of the committee. “We have a plan for building the 100% clean energy economy. And we are going to do it in an equitable and inclusive way.”

The chairman of the House Natural Resources Committee, Raul Grijalva of Arizona said, “The public rightly demands that Congress stop paying lip service to climate policy and start saving lives by making fundamental reforms.”
