Investing in Green Shipping Helps the Ocean
We’ve had some good environmental news recently, including rejoining the Paris Agreement, pausing new federal oil leases and increasing renewable energy production.
Now, we have to keep up the momentum.
As Congress continues to develop new actions and legislation, we want to make sure they’re keeping our ocean in mind.
One way they can do that is by pushing for economic stimulus legislation that invests in green shipping and ports.
Investment in green shipping initiatives will not only reduce greenhouse gasses, it will also cut down on black carbon, which is a nasty particulate that actually speeds up the melting of snow and ice in the Arctic.
Let’s give our economy and our ocean a boost. Take action today: Tell Congress to invest in initiatives that support ocean conservation.
