Talking Points (Feel free to copy/paste and add your thoughts after):

  • The scenarios put forward are too weak to protect our most vulnerable communities. Without a stronger pollution cap, disadvantaged communities will continue to bear the burden of remaining uncapped pollution while receiving less investment.

  • I urge you to go bold and set a strong pollution cap, declining by 5 percent annually. I urge you to prioritize investments for communities living at the frontlines of pollution and a just transition to clean energy.

    As a Maryland resident, I urge you to go bold and set a strong pollution cap, declining by 5 percent annually. I urge you to prioritize investments for communities living at the frontlines of pollution and a just transition to clean energy.

    The nation and the world will look to local leadership in the U.S. to take a stand for the future of our planet as we prepare for a federal administration which denies the existence of climate change.

    I am very much in favor of setting a stronger pollution cap than you have recommended. It should be one that keeps disadvantaged communities from bearing the burden of remaining uncapped pollution, which should decline by 5 percent annually. We must have a just transition to clean energy.

    I was part of the original group of activists that worked toward RGGI in the first few years of this century. The Northeast should continue to lead on climate change.

    Jobs, and better health for all, are just a few of the benefits of a timely transition to all green energy. Stop stalling and move with deliberate reasonable speed.

    Last week the Northeast Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI) states put out two weak scenarios for a 2020-2030 pollution cap. I demand a stronger 5% declining carbon pollution cap in RGGI.

    The climate crisis demands strong action. Please set a strong cap decreasing pollution by at least 5% annually, and invest in create jobs and prioritizing health in the communities most affected by pollution and climate change.

    I urge you to set a significant and sufficient pollution cap with a 5% annual declining cap 1) to help communities that bear the greater brunt of pollution and 2) that helps us transition sooner to a cleaner energy society. In the long run this will be good for all Americans and help build a more resilient economy.

    Clean energy needs to be among our country’s highest priorities right now. While climate change threatens disadvantaged communities most immediately, it is ultimately a deadly threat to all of us, and urgent action is needed. We must agree on strong measures and tough changes if we are to survive. Please be bold on this issue.
