Climate change is serious, and we can’t afford to hand the fate of the planet over to the very polluters, banks, and traders that have gotten us into this mess.
The bottom line is that it won’t make a significant impact on our increasingly unstable climate. And that’s a tragedy.
The new energy bill would strip EPA of its power and let polluters take the reins with a market-based system.
Join us for a briefing on HR 2454 to discuss what the legislation entails, what it lacks, and how it can be improved.
Michael Wara, Stanford University Law School
David Bookbinder, Chief Climate Counsel, Sierra Club
