Let's demand science-based policy

I'm honored to announce that I will be speaking at a very special environmental conference on Monday, April 22, Earth Day.

The conference will be led by Dr. Bill Ripple, a world-renowned professor at Oregon State University who has spent his career researching the impacts of climate change. Dr. Ripple founded the Alliance of World Scientists, an international assembly of more than 14,000 scientists across the world who aim to be a collective on consensus on climate change, environmental trends, and how to turn this information into action.

Together, Dr. Ripple and I will cover current climate science, the costs of inaction, and the fight to enact meaningful policy in Congress. Climate change is the single greatest existential threat to the future of humanity and we need bold action to address it head-on.

RSVP today for From Wolves to the Warning of Humanity: Facing the Environmental Crisis Through Science and help spread the word about this special event!

In Congress, I have always fought to leave a healthy planet for the next generation. As Chairman of the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, I'm committed to working with partners from all fields to implement bold, effective, science-based policies to fight climate change, build resilient transportation infrastructure, and preserve our future. I have directed all six subcommittees to examine more ways to reduce fossil fuel consumption and implement solutions.

Join Dr. Ripple and me on April 22, as we celebrate Earth Day by discussing how we can take action to save our planet and create transformative changes to address climate change.

One bold green step at a time.
