Briefing with Christiana Figueres & Robert Watson
Briefing with Christiana Figueres & Robert Watson

Regardless of what we accomplish this year in terms of climate action, we still have a lot of work to do to avoid the worst scenarios described by the Sixth Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. The report tells us to expect global warming to continue and get worse unless “deep reductions in CO2 and other greenhouse gas emissions occur in the coming decades.”

There are positive developments internationally and here at home. World leaders delivered the Glasgow Climate Pact, which keeps a path open for countries to limit warming. President Biden signed the bipartisan infrastructure bill into law, and lawmakers are inching toward passage of the Build Back Better Act. 

But to realize the necessary reductions to limit global temperature rise to 1.5 degrees Celsius or less, we need Congress to make even bigger investments to speed up an equitable transition to a decarbonized, clean energy economy. And we need to ensure a long-term federal commitment to keep making such investments, help harness new technological innovations, and enact new policies.

If you think the big investments now are hard to accomplish, wait until we get to that long-term commitment. That is why you are so important.

You make possible all the briefings, fact sheets, articles, newsletters, and podcasts that policymakers and their staff rely on to make decisions.

And your commitment to equitable and affordable financing helps transform federal investments into clean energy improvements that help rural households and small businesses save money.

Won't you renew your commitment to climate solutions with a tax-deductible year-end gift today?

I look forward to working together toward a more sustainable, resilient, and equitable world.
