introduced a bill to reduce U.S. emissions of greenhouse gases, because it is the right decision for the present and the future

If we take action to reverse climate change, our children and grandchildren will look back on this period of history and a very simple question: where were they? Why does not the United States of America, the most powerful nation on earth, making the international community to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases and prevent devastating damage that the scientific community was sure to come?

The question is not political. It has nothing to do with the struggles we see every day in Washington. It has everything to do with physics. Leading scientists from around the world who study climate change now tell us that their previous projections were wrong. The crisis our planet is far worse than I had thought only a few years ago. Twelve of the last 15 years, ranked as the warmest on record in the United States. Now, scientists say our planet may be 8F warmer or before the end of this century if we do not take decisive action to transform our energy system and reduce emissions of greenhouse gases.

What does this mean for planet Earth? Rising sea level from three to six feet, which would inundate cities like New Orleans, Miami and Boston and coastal communities around the world. This means that each year we see more and more extreme weather conditions such as hurricanes Irene and sand, costing taxpayers tens of billions of dollars each year and resulting in devastating blows to our economy and productive capacity .

We would
rising food prices because crops in the United States and the world would be affected by temperatures much higher than what we have TODAY ' Today. This means greater threats of war and international instability, because hunger and thirst would fight for limited resources. Average more diseases and preventable deaths.

to transform our energy system, the bill would make the boldest ever investment in energy efficiency and renewable energy. This includes residential HVAC 1m a year, President Obama defended. It also means triple the budget of the advanced research and hundreds of billions of investment through incentives and technology fund public-private partnerships focused on energy efficiency and green transportation technologies as well as solar energy, wind, geothermal and biomass alternative.

In our bill, we also provide funds to train workers for jobs in sustainable energy economy and help communities to withstand extreme weather conditions. We accomplished all of this while paying the debt of approximately $ 300 billion 10 years.
