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.

Despite these obstacles, his administration has made significant strides toward restoring lost environmental protections and confronting daunting threats to our climate and public health, according to a new report by Environment America Research & Policy Center and U.S. PIRG Education Fund.

New report: Reinstated ‘polluter pays’ taxes should speed up lagging toxic waste cleanup

WASHINGTON -- For more than 20 years, the federal government’s “Superfund” program aimed at cleaning up toxic waste sites has languished for lack of funding. The program was originally funded by a tax on the chemical and petroleum industries, but those “polluter pays” taxes expired in 1995. When President Joe Biden signed the bipartisan infrastructure package (BIF) into law last month, a polluter pays tax was finally reinstated on chemical industries.
