Rhode Island has had goals aimed at reducing carbon emissions and fighting climate change on the books for years – but goals are just words on paper when there’s no way to ensure we achieve them.
Without requirements or mandates, Rhode Island cannot enforce its climate goals. Even worse, the State lacks any comprehensive plans for even trying to reach them.
That’s why CLF and our allies are advocating for the passage of the Rhode Island Global Warming Solutions Act (GWSA) – House Bill 7827 and Senate Bill 2747. Modelled on similar statutes in Massachusetts and Connecticut, the Rhode Island GWSA mandates economy-wide reductions in emissions, with the ultimate requirement of cutting carbon pollution by 80 percent below 1990 levels by 2050. Tell your legislators to pass the Global Warming Solutions Act.
If you take action and have not already registered, you will receive periodic updates and communications from Conservation Law Foundation.
Please work to pass the Global Warming Solutions Act
