Stacey Abrams Leads New Effort to Mobilize Climate Action in the U.S. South
The U.S. South is among the most vulnerable regions in the United States to the dangers posed by climate change, but it's falling behind on climate action, according to a new report by the Southern Economic Advancement Project, a think tank founded by Stacey Abrams.
The reports calls on Southern states "to pass laws requiring utilities to adopt renewable or carbon-free sources of power," according to an article sharing the news of the new report written by Dino Grandoni.
Among calls for overhauling the regional power grid with renewable sources of energy, the report calls for cities "to enact building codes requiring energy-efficient structures, and to expand and electrify bus and rail networks," according to Grandoni. The report also calls for subsidies to support the purchase of electric vehicles.
