Rhode Island legislators have work to do on climate change. While our State has goals for reducing climate-damaging carbon emissions, there are no concrete plans to achieve them.
What we need are mandatory, enforceable emissions reductions. This way Rhode Island can ensure we reach our important targets.
That’s where the Rhode Island Global Warming Solutions Act (GWSA) House Bill 7827 and Senate Bill 2747 comes in. Modeled 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 Rhode Island leaders to make real progress on climate – 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.
No More Stalling: Pass the Global Warming Solutions Act
