͏‌Brian Schatz - for Hawaii [[link removed]]
I just got back from Dubai where I attended COP28, the U.N.’s annual climate conference. I’ve been to a few of these but I have to tell you -- this COP was different.
Why? Because it was the first one since we’ve started to feel the impact of the biggest climate bill in U.S. history.
Last year, we passed the Inflation Reduction Act, which set targets for dramatically reducing carbon emissions and made big investments in clean energy. We’re already seeing the results in the hundreds of thousands of new union clean-energy jobs added to our economy.
With the IRA, we proved that big, bold climate action is not just possible -- it’s good for everyone.
Is the IRA enough to address climate change? Of course not. But it was an important step, and it was the most significant one our country has taken yet. We need to keep up the momentum of the IRA and build on its successes because we see climate change getting worse every year with devastating heatwaves, storms, and wildfires. We feel those impacts in Hawaii.
COP hosted many thoughtful and productive discussions between leaders from around the world about how we can best move forward and continue to reduce emissions, make our world more climate-resilient, and support communities that are dealing with the effects of climate change in real-time.
We need to keep having those types of conversations. And we need to keep winning elections and electing leaders who are serious about climate action.
It will take people like you and me taking all sorts of actions -- posting on social media, voting, driving policy, supporting climate candidates on the ballot -- to save our planet. And today, I want to know that you’re committed to being a part of our movement.
Add your name here and stand with me in support of big, bold climate action. [[link removed]]
