• Rejoin the Paris Climate Accord

  • End fossil fuel subsidies

  • Invest in green infrastructure

We have only one planet to pass on to our children and our children’s children so that they may thrive as we have. It is essential to be good stewards of our natural resources and mitigate the impacts of climate change. We will rejoin the Paris Climate Accord and retake America’s position of global leadership on climate change. Fossil fuel lobbying must be abolished, so that big money does not influence environmental legislation. Subsidies for fossil fuel should be eliminated, while increasing those for clean energy initiatives. Further investments should be allocated to green infrastructure, such as electric vehicle charging stations, to revolutionize the transportation sector and diminish our reliance on foreign oil. A carbon tax is also necessary and should have been passed years ago. Cap-and-trade schemes or similar taxes will allow market forces to determine a just price on carbon, reducing the need for federal regulation and oversight. Funds generated through these initiatives would be reinvested to further grow the green economy, create jobs, and protect fragile environments. We must embrace scientifically sound data that shows the true effects of human activity on our planet and develop policies that strengthen our economy, environment, and communities.

 

Everyone deserves a fair chance at happiness, success, and fulfillment. I want to help make the American Dream possible for you and your family as your representative in Congress for the 2nd District. Together, America Works.
