Are you concerned about the climate crisis? Here’s what you can do:

You've heard a lot of talk about infrastructure in recent days. Roads, bridges, airports, seaports, rail, transit—and yes, health care facilities and hospitals, schools and affordable housing, rural broadband, and more.

But you know what I'm thinking about on this Earth Day?

How we can use this moment — this massive investment in America — to tackle the climate crisis, dramatically boost clean energy sources, reduce pollution, and put millions of Americans to work doing it.

When President Biden says we're going to "build back better", he means it. And I mean it.

We're going to supercharge our electric-vehicle future, building a half million EV charging stations, replacing 50,000 diesel buses and 20% of our nation's school buses, and electrifying the federal vehicle fleet (including the Postal Service).

We'll invest in clean energy sources — like wind, solar, and wave — and rebuild our transmission grid to ensure clean energy can find its way to homes and businesses everywhere. We'll put oil and gas workers to work plugging abandoned, leaky oil and gas wells.

We'll retrofit America's schools to make them not only COVID-safe, but also use less energy, produce fewer greenhouse gases, generate less kitchen waste, and provide more green space.

And so much more.

The only way this vision happens is with true Climate Champions in Congress.

Again and again, the oil, gas, and coal industries show up with their millions in SuperPAC spending, and their aggressive climate-denying disinformation campaigns.

We must fight back.

I'm counting on you right now, to chip in and support our Climate Champions by making a grassroots donation to my Climate Champions PAC. Your contributions will help advance the campaigns of candidates that will prioritize the climate crisis when they're in Congress.
