The plan, “Solving the Climate Crisis,” details how Congress could support numerous strategies for containing climate change:

  • Maximize the use of public lands for climate mitigation and resilience;
  • Shift private capital assets toward climate-smart investments;
  • Increase agricultural carbon sequestration; increase efficiency of buildings, appliances and industry, and
  • Set and maintain robust environmental review, requirements and restoration; and strengthen climate science.
