NH Apples Sweet on Senate’s Global Warming Bill

December 5, 2007

Concord, NH – The future of New Hampshire's abundant apple crop may depend on what happens in Washington D.C. today. A U.S. Senate committee will take up the Lieberman-Warner bill, which would reduce greenhouse gas emissions up to 70 percent by 2050. Michael Goo, the legislative director at the Natural Resources Defense Council, says the carbon cutbacks are needed to protect our state's environment and economy.

"There's a lot of impact on agriculture and crops, like apples, that require a colder winter. There are all kinds of things that are extremely important for New Hampshire and its unique ecosystem that could be impacted."

Goo says the idea is to make greenhouse gas producers pay for what they release.

"What these bills will do is put a price on carbon, and that will force us to rely on more renewable energy and other sources of energy."

The bill is scheduled for committee work today, and should reach the full Senate early in 2008.
