Students: Mobilize for climate change bill
The Los Altos High students who marched for climate change are heroes and should be given the keys to the city of Mountain View. In all seriousness, today’s youth give me hope for tomorrow’s future, because they are aware, alarmed and taking action to make their voices heard.
Engaged citizen volunteers from across the U.S. are also alarmed about climate change and will be converging on Washington, D.C., Tuesday to speak with more than 500 congressional offices to gain support for a bipartisan bill: the Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act (HR 763). This bill in the House of Representatives will put a price on carbon pollution resulting in a reduction of carbon emissions by 33% relative to 2015 levels within a decade, and by 90% by 2050.
