To the Editor:
Good news: Greta Thunberg will testify in Congress on Earth Day, April 22.
The testimony will occur as President Biden hosts a climate change summit with 40 world leaders.
Thunberg, Time’s person of the year in 2019 for her work on climate change, will appear before a House Oversight Committee panel for a hearing entitled “The Role of Fossil Fuel Subsidies in Preventing Action on the Climate Crisis.”
More good news: On April 1, Rep. Ted Deutch reintroduced the Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act (H.R. 2307) into the 117th Congress with 28 cosponsors. Go here to learn more: https://community.citizensclimate.org/topics/energy-innovation-act
