Sierra Club Emission Reduction Fact Sheet April 14, 2021

The Sierra Club issued a press release announcing a fact sheet showing a path for the US to reduce emissions.

The fact sheet covers specific areas:
Moving Beyond Dirty Fuels
Clean Energy
Clean Transportation
This month, the Biden administration will announce a new nationally determined contribution (NDC) under the Paris Agreement—the amount the US will pledge to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions by 2030. The Sierra Club is calling on the Biden administration to commit to slashing greenhouse gas emissions at least 50 percent below 2005 levels by 2030, a target that begins to reflect the urgency of this moment.
The stakes of the climate crisis couldn’t be higher. It puts our homes, our communities, our health, our economy, and our wild places at risk. As the US rejoins the Paris Agreement, we must set emissions-reductions targets that begin to meet the urgency of this moment. We
are calling on President Biden to be a climate leader and set an ambitious yet achievable nationally defined contribution under the Paris Agreement: reducing emissions at least 50 percent below 2005 levels by 2030.
Sierra Club members and supporters poured thousands of hours into working for climate action in every major sector, and won real progress. Now, it’s time for the Biden administration to follow through on its promises to treat climate change like the existential crisis it is. Only by setting, and meeting, a goal of cutting carbon emissions at least by half by 2030 will the world start to have a fighting chance of averting the worst impacts of the climate crisis.
