“The choices we make today will determine the kind of world we leave our children and grandchildren. We can’t give up on negotiations when the stakes are so high and there is still an opportunity to reach agreement on climate solutions. President Biden, Majority Leader Schumer and Senator Manchin have expressed support for a major package of climate and clean energy investments. Now they must come together to put us on path toward a clean energy future that modernizes our economy, creates jobs, advances environmental justice and stabilizes the climate.  The President has called climate change a ‘code red’ emergency for our future. This is not the moment to give up. It is the time to get a deal done.”
