Washington, D.C. — In response to House Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman Frank Pallone (D-NJ) announcing plans to develop legislation laying out the path to a 100 percent clean energy economy by 2050, Christy Goldfuss, senior vice president for Energy and Environment at the Center for American Progress, issued the following statement:
A plan for 100 percent clean energy is a plan for a safe climate, clean air, and good-paying jobs. With the record-breaking heat waves and horrifying flooding that this summer has brought, our need for swift climate action has never been more urgent. We applaud the leadership of Chairman Pallone and his colleagues on the Energy and Commerce Committee as they lay down this bold and necessary vision.
