Climate Change is real, it's here and must be addressed if we are to leave this planet in better shape for our children, grandchildren and generations to come.
As a member of the Legisaltive Climate Solutions Caucus, I was glad to be part of the effort that passed the Global Warming Solutions Act- and overode the Governors veto.
GWSA will develop a long-needed plan to pull together the efforts to reduce carbon and set the goals we need to reach and hold us to meeting those goals.
A next step is getting the Governor to sign on to the Trasmportation Climate Initiative, a multi-state collaboration (details at https://www.georgetownclimate.org)
Transportation is one of the largest contributors to Vermont's carbon footprint. TCI will give us the resources to support clean trasnpoirtation and create a statewide Public Transit System.
Claiate Actions have been and can be a great Economic Driver. The EConomy of the Fuure is Clean and Green with jobs in Conservation, Efficiency, Renewables and Alternative Fuels.
The future is now for Carbon Reduction.
