Climate Change and the Environment
Beatty on Energy and the Environment
The consensus view of scientists about the impact that climate change poses to our planet is alarming. Rising temperatures are projected to devastate many of our planet’s precious ecosystems, increase coastal flooding to dangerous levels, disrupt our food systems, and increase extreme weather occurrences.
These science-backed facts are why I support taking bold steps to invest in federal programs to address climate change, prevent spending cuts to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), fully enforce the Clean Air Act, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, minimize our reliance on fossil fuels, and promote energy efficiency and conservation. I also support the Paris Climate Agreement and believe the United States should remain a full partner in the international effort to address climate change.
