U.S. to hold record offshore wind auction next month in clean energy push

"The [offshore wind] leases are projected to one day host projects able to generate up to 7 gigawatts of electricity, enough to power 2 million homes."

Clean energy is good for the planet and it's good for the average person.

President Joe Biden's administration on Wednesday said it would hold the U.S. government's biggest ever offshore wind auction next month for areas in waters off the coast of New York and New Jersey, part of a range of measures it unveiled to speed growth of clean energy.

The climate crisis is here and now.

Last year, the U.S. saw some of the hottest and coldest temperatures ever recorded, with numerous records broken by double digits, a Times analysis found.

U.S. Greenhouse Gas Emissions Bounced Back Sharply in 2021

"The United States is likely to fall far short of achieving Mr. Biden’s climate goals without major new policies to speed up the transition to wind, solar and other clean energy."

Our last, best chance of reversing this trend is to immediately pass the Build Back Better Act.

Emissions rose 6 percent last year after a record 10 percent decline in 2020, fueled by a rise in coal power and truck traffic as the U.S. economy rebounded from the pandemic.

January 6th Day Of Remembrance And Action

JANUARY 6TH DAY OF REMEMBRANCE AND ACTION: Today marks one year since the violent and deadly attacks at the U.S. Capitol. A broad coalition of more than 130 organizations are holding a D.C. vigil near the U.S. Capitol with more than 350 events planned across the country. To prevent this kind of attack from happening again, advocates are demanding elected leaders pass urgent legislation that will protect the right to vote including the Freedom to Vote Act, the Protecting Our Democracy Act, the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act, and DC Statehood.

Reps. Veronica Escobar (D-TX), Pramila Jayapal (D-WA), Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-DC), Andy Kim (D-NJ), Jamie Raskin (D-MD), and Sen. Chris Van Hollen will also provide remarks and offer first-hand accounts of the January 6th attacks.

One year ago today, violent insurrectionists tried to overturn the will of the American people in storming the U.S. Capitol.

This attack on the very foundations of our democracy was an attack on us all. We need to pass voting rights by any means necessary to prevent the next #Jan6.

A six-month Times investigation has synchronized and mapped out thousands of videos and police radio communications from the Jan. 6 Capitol riot, providing the most complete picture to date of what happened — and why.
