IPCC Report Demonstrates Urgent Need for Scaled Up Deployment of Clean Energy and Energy Efficiency
Statement from BCSE President Lisa Jacobson
“Since the last IPCC Physical Science Basis report was released in 2013, scientists have made significant progress on measuring and projecting the impacts of climate change. The sixth edition released today shows that we have a very small window of opportunity to stop global climate change at 1.5C of warming. It reinforces that 2C or more of warming would be exponentially worse for our planet and civilization.
”U.S. energy efficiency, natural gas and renewable energy businesses are dedicated to enabling the necessary energy transition with clean energy and energy efficiency technologies that support an affordable, reliable and sustainable energy system. Congress and President Biden must enact federal policy to drive this transition on the timeline called for by the scientific community in this report – starting with the bipartisan infrastructure framework.”
