Global warming solutions

Can you imagine a safer, healthier fossil fuel-free future filled with more trees and cleaner ways to get around for your children and grandchildren? So can we. And we’re working together to make it happen.

To avoid the most catastrophic effects of climate change, from stronger storms to more frequent floods and worsening wildfires, it is clear that we need to reduce our reliance on dirty fossil fuels such as methane, keep our old trees standing tall and transition to a zero-waste economy powered by clean, renewable energy. Fortunately, global warming solutions are all around us — we just need to use them.

PennEnvironment Statement: Inflation Reduction Act could be a ‘game changer’ for climate and clean energy

PHILADELPHIA– Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and Sen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia have reached a deal on a federal reconciliation bill that would represent the nation’s largest ever investment in clean energy and climate solutions. The Inflation Reduction Act includes nearly $370 billion in climate spending, designed to achieve a 40% emissions reduction by 2030.

Biden promises action on climate change during event at former coal plant
