U.S. House Select Committee on the Climate Releases Global Warming Plan

The House Select Committee on the Climate Crisis has released an extensive plan to help curb global warming, with an ambitious goal of reducing human-caused greenhouse gas net emissions to zero by 2050, beyond which the U.S. would become a net absorber of CO2 from the atmosphere.

The plan, “Solving the Climate Crisis,” details how Congress could support numerous strategies for containing climate change: maximize the use of public lands for climate mitigation and resilience; shift private capital assets toward climate-smart investments; increase agricultural carbon sequestration; increase efficiency of buildings, appliances and industry; set and maintain robust environmental review, requirements and restoration; and strengthen climate science.
