The Trust for Public Land on the Clean Economy Act

November 21, 2019

“The effects of the climate crisis are getting worse, and our federal government needs to act now to protect people—particularly those who are most vulnerable,” said Brendan Shane, director of climate for The Trust for Public Land. “Moving to a 100% Clean Economy will create healthier, more prosperous communities and help protect us from extreme heat, floods and wildfire. To achieve a National, Net-Zero Emissions Goal, we have to reduce emissions and pull carbon out of the atmosphere. Restoring natural systems and building greener communities captures carbon and better connects us to nature—and to each other.”
