AMERICA IS ALL IN Hill Day for Climate Action
Show Congress that All of America supports bold climate action and investment.
On April 22, 2021, the Biden Administration released an NDC of 50-52% emissions reductions from 2005 levels by 2030 to get the nation on track to reach net-zero emissions by 2050. Leaders from America Is All In released a statement in response, supporting an ambitious climate target.
In December 2020, over 1,800 U.S. institutions signed a statement calling for a national climate target that is “ambitious and equitable” and takes community and institutional efforts and perspectives into consideration. In February 2021, America Is All In launched with a call to at least halve U.S. emissions. In April 2021, businesses, universities, hospitals, scientists, activists, and others declared their support for an ambitious NDC.
Achieving emissions reductions target of 50-52% by 2030 requires an all-of-society approach. It can create good jobs-paying for Americans support a healthy future for communities that have borne the brunt of environmental and economic harms from fossil fuel pollution and climate change.
A Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) is a set of targets, measures and policies for reducing a country’s greenhouse gas emissions and addressing its climate impacts.
2021 can be a year of global action to address the climate crisis, and the United States has the opportunity to step up its climate action and deliver a strong commitment to the world. This 2021 analysis from the America Is All In analytical team demonstrates how a comprehensive, all-of-society strategy for the United States, integrating federal and non-federal action, can deliver greenhouse gases emissions reductions of 50% below 2005 levels by 2030—securing the country’s path towards a clean and healthy future for all.
