This Letter to the Editor appeared in the Bucks County Courier Times today…
Congressman Patrick Murphy has co-sponsored HB1590, the Safe Climate Act.Here are links to other Earth Day events and festivities, and as always, to help Patrick, click here.
There are several other bills pending, but this particular bill would do far more to improve the condition of the environment and slow global warming. It calls for a minimum of 20 percent of the electricity produced to originate from renewable sources by 2020, and for a reduction of emissions that contribute to global warming by 80 percent by the year 2050. These are both attainable and necessary goals, endorsed by several environmental organizations. The science supports these goals, and the technology exists to achieve them.
Congressman Murphy and the other sponsors must now follow up to see that Congress takes action on this bill as soon as possible.
