Support sustainable energy, Greenhouse Gas Initiative
This July, floods ravaged the eastern part of Pennsylvania, destroying family homes and leaving citizens stranded. While floods have always been a part of life, meteorology proves that climate change increases the severity and frequency of these events.
Luckily, solutions to climate change will improve both the economy and public health. Despite the pandemic, the renewable energy industry grew 45% in 2020, providing well-paying, permanent jobs. Research published in the New England Journal of Medicine demonstrates that carbon pollution leads to pulmonary and cardiovascular disease in the northeast. Reducing carbon pollution will save lives and preserve precious public health resources.
Climate change is no longer an issue for hippies or impoverished countries on the other side of the world.
Climate change is impacting our state, our economy, and our health.
Each citizen has a responsibility to act on this issue. Call your state representative today and tell them you support sustainable energy and the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI).
