This act will take some very critical and important steps to fight climate change. It will phase out fossil fuels, cap emissions, ban fracking, and ban offshore drilling. Ultimately, climate change is the gravest threat to society, and we need bold action to deal with it. This ambitious legislation seeks to do just that. If we pass this, we will be a step closer to saving the planet, as such I urge the Council to vote AYE.

I applaud S019 efforts when it comes to combating climate change, and this bill is a great step forward. Although, I propose some changes in the form of an amendment to make the standards more realistic
