The environment

Climate change is real.

 
 

I had to opportunity to visit Antarctica in 2015.  Already since I have been there the landscape has changed with the calving and consequent melting of iceberg A68 in 2017.  I am not a scientist, but I don't think you have to be to grasp that climate change is real.

I will support legislation which encourages residents to move away from fossil fuels.  I am interested in ways our state can offset tariffs on solar panels to encourage more people to install solar systems and I am open to the idea of a carbon tax, and that's just the beginning.

 

 

l am also a strong believer in creating walk-able communities.  We drive too much around here.  I want to work with my colleagues on ways to incentivize infill in our communities instead of sprawl.

 It's crazy that I was only in Antarctica three years ago and already because of climate change, places I saw, are no longer.
