Global warming is real and demands our immediate attention. But taking on this issue is not at odds with economic growth. In fact, just the opposite is true — new, more efficient technologies enable us to propel our economy even as we ensure climate stability for this and future generations. Pennsylvania is leading the way with clean energy initiatives that decrease our nation’s dangerous dependence on foreign oil and build a diversified energy base that ensures greater security at home. We are investing in technologies that put people to work and clean up the environment at the same time. Environmental challenges are driving economic growth in Pennsylvania. Isn’t time we demand these same investments at the national level, too? With benefits that promise a healthier environment, enhanced security and greater savings, we have everything to gain and nothing to lose.
