Nancy Pelosi ask Trump to return the US to the Paris climate agreement
After a raucous day of Senate Republicans trolling Democrats on a Green New Deal vote, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Wednesday morning stepped up with a clear message: Climate change is a pillar of House Democrats’ legislative agenda in the new Congress.
In a press conference, Pelosi announced that House Democrats had been introducing HR 9, the Climate Action Now Act, which targets to preserve the United States in the 2015 Paris local weather agreement. It’s one of the first 10 bills brought by using the new House majority and will probably come to a vote this year.
The suite of proposals from congressional Democrats to fight local weather trade range from pricing carbon dioxide to the expansive Green New Deal resolution. But HR 9 is the first authentic climate bill — the others are proposals and resolutions — and Democrats say the fact that it’s one of the first payments of the new Congress indicates how serious they are about battle climate change.
