To the Editor:

I want our leaders to know that here in McAllen, TX., we support bold action on climate and energy, including a cap on carbon pollution.

Capping carbon pollution will ignite the transition to clean energy, end our dependence on dirty fossil fuels, and put America on a path toward economic recovery.

A cap on carbon pollution will create tens of thousands of good-paying American jobs that canít be shipped overseas.

Consumers and businesses will benefit from stable energy prices, and with greater energy efficiency, we can get more from the energy we have which will mean lower electricity bills.

Now is the time for action. The economy canít wait. The climate crisis canít wait.
