Cryptomining continues to sap electricity from the grid and supercharge the climate crisis. @SenWarren and I pushed for required energy reporting—now we need to pass my Crypto-Asset Environmental Transparency Act and tackle this problem. reuters.com/technology/us-…

Good. Cryptomining’s extravagant electricity use is straining our grid, driving up prices, and harming our climate. We need to push the industry away from this extreme energy waste and @POTUS's tax is a good start. yahoo.com/news/biden-pro…

When one year of U.S. Bitcoin mining creates as many carbon emissions as 7.5 million gas-powered cars—we have a problem. Today's hearing made that even clearer.

Big-money cryptomining companies are undermining decades of climate action with their carbon emissions. We must hold them accountable. I'm introducing the Crypto-Asset Environmental Transparency Act to do just that. bloomberg.com/news/articles/…

Texas cryptominers are burning fossil fuels, making millions in subsidies, and leaving Texans to struggle with an unreliable grid on the brink of collapse. I joined @SenWarren to demand answers from ERCOT about these payments. We need transparency. twitter.com/senwarren/stat…
