Good for Shaheen
To the Editor: On Nov. 6, Senator Shaheen joined the bipartisan Senate climate solutions caucus. This is an excellent step towards taking action on climate change. The recent king tide, which flooded many Hampton homes and businesses, is evidence that New Hampshire is impacted by climate change and rising sea level.
I hope that this caucus introduces bipartisan legislation in the Senate, similar to the Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act (HR 763), which has been introduced into the House.
This legislation would reduce emissions by 40% in 12 years, thus improving health and saving lives. The carbon dividend puts money directly into people’s pockets every month to spend as they see fit, helping low- and middle-income Americans. And the policy would create over a million new jobs.
Please encourage Senator Shaheen to introduce similar legislation in the Senate.
