Why Arizona Needs the Inflation Reduction Act Now

Critical climate and clean energy investments will create millions of good-paying jobs, lower energy costs for families, invest in disadvantaged communities and reduce climate pollution. Not only are Arizonans demanding climate action now, with 78% of registered voters supporting Congressional action on climate change, they are experiencing the devastating impacts of climate change. Arizona will suffer more than most of the country under current climate change projections, demonstrating precisely why Congress must act now and pass the Inflation Reduction Act to secure Arizona’s future. Here’s why Arizona needs the climate investments in the Inflation Reduction Act now: 

Voters in Arizona want solutions to the climate crisis.

Investing in clean energy means jobs for Arizona.

Arizonans are already feeling the impacts of climate change.

If we do nothing, it will get worse for communities across the state and cost billions of dollars.

Climate change and fossil fuel pollution have a disproportionate impact on people of color in Arizona.
