Senate Introduces Clean Economy Act

Groundbreaking bill complements House’s efforts on climate solutions

A new bill, introduced today by U.S. Sen. Tom Carper of Delaware and co-sponsored by 33 members, calls for a national goal of net zero emissions of global warming pollution in the United States by midcentury. 

If passed into law, the Clean Economy Act of 2020 would require the Environmental Protection Agency to create a plan, using existing authorities, to reduce greenhouse gas emissions to net zero by 2050. This date is in line with the deadline the world’s top climate scientists have given in order to keep global warming below 1.5 Celsius and avert the worst impacts of climate change.
