The United States now has far more tools to reduce global warming pollution, after the passage of the inflation Reduction Act in August. Today, the White House published Building a Clean Energy Economy: A Guidebook to the Inflation Reduction Act’s Investments in Clean Energy and Climate Action to detail programs in the law aimed at building a clean energy economy, lowering energy costs, tackling climate change, and reducing harmful pollution. Many will take effect starting January 2023.
“The new Implementation Guidebook for the Inflation Reduction Act makes it clear: Consumers, cities, states, businesses and community organizations now have myriad opportunities to reduce pollution that makes us sick and worsens global warming,” said Faye Park, President of U.S. PIRG. “Cities can swap dirty buses and garbage trucks for clean electric ones. Your favorite home chef can get a clean electric or induction stove that doesn’t increase the risk of asthma for their kids. All of us can save energy in our homes and businesses. We encourage everyone to use this great resource to learn more.”
U.S. PIRG and U.S. PIRG Education Fund are educating consumers about the new programs available to them, including a recent guide to pollution-free cooking.
