Environmental Justice

Our state, our country, and our world are at a crossroads. We must address the climate change crisis now with bold, transformative action that will protect our planet. We must pass a Green New Deal that will massively scale down carbon emissions, meet 100% of our power demand through clean, renewable and zero-emission energy sources, and build energy efficient, distributed smart power grids to ensure access to affordable electricity.

 

I also support:

  • Saving and protecting our Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness and Superior National Forest

  • Ending fossil fuel subsidies and blocking new fossil fuel infrastructure investments

  • Investing in areas that have been victim to environmental racism

  • Ensuring every zip code has access to clean drinking water by replacing every lead pipe in America

  • Banning fracking

  • Investing in high-speed rail, public transportation and zero-emission vehicle infrastructure

  • Building walkable, transit-oriented communities
