The Inflation Reduction Act, if passed, will be a huge step forward on climate action and put our country on a path to reduce carbon emissions by close to 40 percent by 2030. With $369 billion in investments in climate and clean energy, this bill would be by far the most important action Congress has ever taken to address climate change.
As the nation experiences the deadly and devastating impacts of the climate crisis and longstanding environmental and racial injustice, Congress must seize this opportunity to make urgently needed transformational change.
