We’ve got one planet, y’all. There is no “Earth 2”. Let’s start acting like it.
The science is conclusive; climate change is real and we are actively destroying our one planet. Yet we’ve pulled out of the Paris Climate Accord, turned the EPA into a rubber stamp for corporate polluters, and allowed countries like Germany and China to take the lead on green energy, putting our economy at a distinct disadvantage both at home and abroad.
Georgia Can’t Wait Solution: We must pass the Green New Deal into law. This legislation would spur massive growth in clean manufacturing, build smart power grids, and rein in corporate polluters. In the 10th District we would see an explosion of green energy jobs that would help our rural economies thrive and prosper like never before.
In addition, we must rejoin the Paris Climate Accord and rebuild the EPA to do the job it was built to do — protect our environment. This means no more drilling in National Parks, no more polluting our lakes, streams, oceans and wetlands, and no more fracking. Anywhere.
Only by taking these steps can we halt the damage we’ve already done and protect and nourish this miracle of a planet we’ve been given. For our sake and the sake of future generations, the time to act is now, before it really is too late.
