Sept. 21 (UPI) -- The U.S. Climate Alliance Thursday announced new commitments from its bipartisan coalition of 25 governors to decarbonize by ending emissions from buildings and quadrupling heat pump installations.
"We are in a climate emergency and the window to act is closing. U.S. Climate Alliance states get that. That's why we're taking bold, immediate action by quadrupling heat pump installations by 2030," said Washington Gov. Jay Inslee in a statement. "Heat pumps are available and affordable, not to mention better for the air we breathe. So our commitment today is good for our planet, and for our people."
