    Historic Senate Climate Deal Would Reduce Emissions 40% By 2030

    Historic Senate Climate Deal Would Reduce Emissions 40% By 2030

    On Wednesday, the U.S. Senate worked out a deal for a reconciliation package that includes $369 billion toward climate and energy funding. The deal comes after Senator Joe Manchin, D-W.V., reversed his initial decision against the bill, citing concerns over increasing spending amid rising inflation. The bill, if passed, would reduce emissions by 40%, compared to 2005 levels, by the end of this decade.
