“We strongly support Senator Schumer’s call for a Select Committee on the Climate Crisis. Climate change threatens our health, our economy, and our children’s future – and the American people are increasingly frustrated that business-as-usual in Washington is not bringing us closer to fixing this problem. To pass effective climate legislation, and have it last, it is critically important that we have support and ideas from both parties. We need scientists, farmers, activists, investors, and inventors – and most of all, leaders with courage – to join in the search for solutions.”
