This is the July 29, 2021 hearing on "Financing Climate Solutions and Job Creation," held before the U.S. House of Representatives Select Committee on the Climate Crisis. From the opening statement of Kathy Castor: "[T]he key to a clean economy is clean electricity. The good news is that our nation's electricity sector has reduced carbon pollution in the last decade, but the reality is that we have to do more, and we have to do it quickly. Clean electricity helps unlock further pollution cuts in other sectors of the economy, including transportation, buildings, and industry. And in order to cut U.S. carbon pollution by more than half by 2030, as President Biden pledged to the world that we will do, we need to implement climate solutions in every sector. [...] Our job is to help American families and businesses make that transition, especially as so many of them are still recovering from the economic impacts of the COVID [coronavirus disease] pandemic. That is why Congress must support expanded access to technologies that are already available, making them more affordable, and building on the progress that we have already made." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Duanne Andrade, John Larsen, Rich Powell, and Zoe Lipman.
