Larson Renews Call to Address Climate Crisis, Introduces Green New Deal Resolution
Washington, D.C. – Today, Rep. John B. Larson (CT-01) renewed his call to address our global climate crisis head on. Larson cosponsored the Green New Deal Resolution that is sponsored by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY-14) in the House and Senator Edward Markey (D-MA) in the Senate.
“Climate change isn’t something we can kick down the road any longer, we need to take serious measures to address this issue head on. Just yesterday NASA and NOAA released data showing the last five years are the five hottest on record. This isn’t a partisan issue, this is about facts and science. We all need to join together and take action that will help us sustain a healthy planet. I am proud to cosponsor the Green New Deal resolution as we work to make this a reality,” said Larson.
Larson has long been calling for serious measures to be taken to address our global climate crisis. He is the author of the American Wins Act, which would put significant dent in our carbon emissions by taxing pollution at its source and using the revenue to invest in the nation’s infrastructure.
