For too long, politicians have failed to listen to scientists and security experts when it comes to our changing climate. Rising sea levels and increasingly powerful storms threaten our coastal residents and their local economies, critical infrastructure, and military bases. Sarah supports the principles underlying the Green New Deal and believes that climate change is an existential threat to Americans’ health, safety and prosperity. Once elected to the Senate, Sarah will be proactive in working with scientists and engineers to direct public resources to combating climate change and increasing public awareness of the dangers of climate change. Sarah will center facts, science, and data in the environmental policies she supports. She will work to reverse the Trump administration’s devastating rollbacks to laws that protect Americans’ access to clean water and clean air. This a threat that will require an all-of-the-above approach with the support of workers, the business community, scientists, and climate change activists.
