Biden Commits to Halving Greenhouse Gas Emissions by 2030

Emissions from fossil fuels are hampering progress on climate

April 22, 2021 (BOSTON, MA) – At an Earth Day event today, President Biden committed to slash U.S. greenhouse gas emissions 50% below 2005 levels by the end of this decade. Conservation Law Foundation (CLF) released the following statement in response.

“President Biden’s ambitious goal promises the aggressive push we need to confront the existential threat that is the climate crisis,” said CLF President Bradley Campbell. “Several New England states have already committed to strong, science-based reductions in climate-damaging emissions, and it’s time the rest of the country catches up with our leadership.”

CLF experts are available for further comment.
