“The disapproval resolution passed in the Senate this afternoon is the latest in a series of attempts to derail a carbon reduction program in Pennsylvania that would unquestionably save lives, create jobs, and protect the most vulnerable of our residents against corporate pollution,” said PennFuture President and CEO Jacquelyn Bonomo. “Our world is at a tipping point because of the climate crisis. Yet some of our elected officials continue to protect dirty fossil fuel interests who obstruct the pathway to a healthy environment for Pennsylvanians with their hyperbole and mistruths. The science is clear: Pennsylvania must transition to a clean energy economy, and we must do everything in our power to lower our carbon emissions as quickly as we can. The disapproval resolution passed today is just one more intentional roadblock intended to slow or all together stop that progress, and that is unacceptable.”
PennFuture is leading the transition to a clean energy economy in Pennsylvania, fighting big polluters with legal muscle, enforcing environmental laws, and supporting legislative policy that protects public health. PennFuture is engaging and educating citizens about the realities of climate change, and giving them the tools needed to influence lawmakers on the issues.
