Rick Parnell, CEO of Foundation for Climate Restoration, Issues Statement on Climate Emergency Resolution

July 9, 2019

WASHINGTON, July 09, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Rick Parnell, CEO of the Foundation for Climate Restoration, issues the following statement on the Climate Emergency Resolution:

“Members of the Senate and the House plan to imminently introduce the first-ever Climate Emergency Resolution in the U.S. Congress. The Foundation for Climate Restoration applauds the Resolution as it includes a clear commitment for Congressional action to restore the climate for future generations. “Climate Restoration is the global effort to return the Earth’s climate to a safe and healthy state like which humanity and our natural world evolved by 2050. There are solutions available today that if scaled could remove a trillion tons of excess CO2 from the atmosphere and restore Arctic ice. Climate restoration is complementary to ongoing CO2 emission reduction and adaptation efforts. “The Climate Emergency is not a partisan issue. It affects all of us. We urge all members of Congress to co-sponsor this Resolution. At the same time, we invite everyone including civic groups, youth groups, academics, faith-based groups, the private sector and governments to join us in creating a Coalition for Climate Restoration – together we can return our climate to a healthy state. The future of humanity is in the balance. This is the moment.”
