Elected Officials to Protect America’s COP26 delegation urges world action on climate with Presidential Emergency Declaration and passage of the Build Back Better
EOPA has gathered over 450 signatures from lawmakers throughout America on a letter that supports a national clean energy plan and asks for a Presidential climate emergency declaration.“We are at an inflection point. The world must mobilize together in emergency action or face catastrophe. At the Paris talks, EOPA cheered the global agreement, but it has not translated to action on the scale needed to mitigate the worsening climate crisis.” said Dominic Frongillo, Executive Director and Co-Founder of Elected Officials to Protect America, former Councilmember and Deputy Supervisor Caroline, New York. “In this global crisis, America must lead. Our EOPA delegation represents elected officials from across America who are doing their utmost in their states and communities. Now, we need our elected officials in Washington D.C. to swiftly act with the passage of the Build Back Better Act. We also urge President Biden to enact a Climate Emergency Declaration and Plan.” ... read more HERE.
Climate Action with Offshore Wind = Jobs & Justice
Offshore wind buildout helps environmental justice bringing jobs and training to communities left behind, say over 100 New York elected officials who signed a letter to the Governor to ensure it happens responsibly.
Climate change is real, just ask anyone who lives on the coast. Coastal erosion is a constant threat. Hurricanes devastate the region. Without immediate action, much of New York’s current coastline will be lost under a projected 8 feet of sea level rise by the end of the century, along with the homes and livelihoods of hundreds of thousands. The mental anguish would be horrifying. The financial losses of up to $180 billion, or the equivalent of three Superstorm Sandys, would be catastrophic. Responsible offshore wind development can mitigate this human and economic catastrophe while generating new opportunities for growth. It has the potential to meet 90 percent of total U.S. energy demand by 2050. Read more HERE.
