The Stakes are High
I've always had a love of the environment but my passions reached new levels while I was in college and beyond. Nature provides a spiritual connection for many and provides an escape from everyday life. We rely on it for our livelihoods, whether it's food, clean water, clean air and more.
That is why it's time that we take climate change seriously. We need to cut our greenhouse gas emissions in half by 2030 and to do that, we need to make major changes to our economy.
The great thing is that the technology to do so already exists. We can transition our economy to a zero emissions economy and safeguard our environment by doing the following:
-investing in the infrastructure to make a renewable energy economy a reality
-increasing the number of electric vehicles on the road
-providing funding to protect America’s natural resources
-cleaning up our air and water
