The Ripple Effect Video

On Earth Day this year, I had the honor of joining world-renowned environmental scientist Dr. Bill Ripple for a conference on climate change.

We discussed current climate science, the cost of inaction, and the fight to enact meaningful policy in Congress.

If you were not able to make it, don't fret! You can watch the conversation here.

I'm determined to step up the fight in Washington, too. As chairman of the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, I directed all six subcommittees to examine ways to reduce fossil fuel consumption and implement clean energy solutions. Because we need to implement bold, effective, science-based policies to fight the growing existential threat to humanity.

Watch the video now.
