Thank you, Rep. Kuster
On Monday, U.S. Rep. Annie Kuster joined 76 bipartisan cosponsors on the most effective and beneficial climate bill to ever get this far in Congress. It will stop climate pollution at the pace required and on a global scale, while growing America’s economy and helping the poor. This bill is called the Energy Innovation Act (HR 763).
The Energy Innovation Act will reduce US carbon emissions by 40% in twelve years and 90% in thirty years, using efficient efficient market forces to incentivize the transition to clean energy. In the first ten years, it will create a net 2.1 million jobs across the country and save 300,000 lives. Perhaps even more importantly, it will strongly encourage all other countries to match our carbon price, which will drive down emissions worldwide.
As a 16-year-old nordic skier, I am very worried about the effects of climate change. It is wonderful that Representative Kuster has decided to decided to co-sponsor this bill, because it is our best first step to address the root cause of the problem. Please show your appreciation to Representative Kuster and ask our other NH Representatives to take similar action at cclusa.org/write. Thank you!
