Eshoo Statement on EPA Proposal to Cut Greenhouse Gas Emissions

June 2nd, 2014

PALO ALTO, Calif.—Congresswoman Anna G. Eshoo (CA-18), a senior member of the Energy and Commerce Committee, issued the following statement on the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) proposal to cut greenhouse gas emissions:

“Climate change is one of the most serious issues facing our nation and our planet, and the science makes clear that greenhouse gases from human activity are the number one contributor. The EPA proposal gets to the heart of the problem by curbing harmful greenhouse gas pollution with smart policy grounded in the 1970 Clean Air Act. It will propel a U.S. clean energy economy, create jobs, and make the United States a global leader in clean energy use. Amid record drought, extreme weather, declining public health, and rising temperatures, inaction is not an option. I wholeheartedly welcome this prudent proposal.”

RT @TomWheelerFCC: There’s one glaring exception in the competitive video marketplace: the “set-top box.” It doesn’t have to be that way!
