Rep. Frank Pallone details ambitious plan to tackle climate change

The state’s most powerful member of Congress is pushing a plan to tackle climate change. It’s an expanded version of last year’s CLEAN Future Act and U.S. Rep. Frank Pallone (D-6th) says it takes an industry-by-industry approach. The goals are ambitious: Eliminate carbon dioxide and reach net-zero emissions by 2050. Pallone goes on the record as part of our ongoing series, Peril and Promise.

Lead funding for Peril and Promise is provided by Dr. P. Roy Vagelos and Diana T. Vagelos. Major support is provided by Marc Haas Foundation and Sue and Edgar Wachenheim, III.
