The Environment

On January 20, 2021 and on his first day in office, President Biden signed the document to bring the United States back into the Paris Climate Agreement.  More than 200 nations have signed on and have committed to limit their greenhouse gas emissions in an attempt to keep global warming below 2 degrees Celsius.  As your Senator, if science tells us that this is not enough, I will vote to pass more legislation to drastically reduce carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases in the coming years.  This will include forcing the most polluting nations around the world to take aggressive action on decreasing pollution that is being emitted into the environment by switching to clean energy ASAP.  Furthermore,  I will propose that special clauses are included in all future agreements to prevent future sitting presidents from tampering and/or rolling back key components of them.  In my opinion, it’s a terrible shame that we even have to enact laws to get some of the greedy corporations around the world and in our country to do the right thing.  For instance, I get a letter in the mail maybe every other month from my electric supplier.  The letters are asking me if I would like to switch to energy that comes from a clean renewable source. If I check the box that says “yes,” then the electric company will make it happen for an increased rate. I shouldn’t have to make a simple moral choice like that.  The electric company should just do it and not charge me for it.  No one should have to pay for doing something that will yield a great and positive environmental impact.
