President Biden has officially announced plans to expand our use of offshore wind turbines on the east coast. Among other benefits, it will:
- Power 10 million homes
- Deploy 30,000 megawatts of offshore wind turbines in coastal waters nationwide by 2030
- Avoid 78 million metric tons of carbon dioxide emissions.
This resolution is a good start in putting our country on the path towards a clean energy future, but it is not enough to truly meet the scope of the problem.
We still have an opportunity to avert the worst impacts of climate change but we cannot wait until 2030 to do so. We must act swiftly and take every step we need to keep our planet habitable for future generations.
