“Investing in green infrastructure, low-carbon transportation, and measures to combat the climate crisis are among our most pressing national priorities, and President Biden’s ambitious budget reflects his commitment to ensuring the United States remains a global clean energy powerhouse. Simply put, the administration is putting its money where its mouth is, and Climate Reality commends the president and his administration for the climate ambition demonstrated through today’s budget.
“The urgency of the climate crisis requires an unprecedented scale of economic growth and transformation to meet our climate commitments. From the growth of wind and solar energy to the proliferation of electric cars and buses, the solutions are at hand today, but we need the kind of bold investment outlined in this federal budget to accelerate a just low-carbon transition and remain competitive with the rest of the world. The economic and political momentum for a clean energy economy is unstoppable, and we urge Congress to swiftly consider and pass this much-needed investment in America’s future.”
