Climate change represents an existential threat to our environment. I agree with the Department of Defense: climate change is one of the most urgent national security issues of our time. The science of climate change is conclusive and indisputable: humans are the principal cause of it and our planet is warming at an extremely alarming rate. In Congress, I will fight for larger investments into alternative, clean sources of fuel, and I will support legislation that would increase subsidies for homeowners who wish to utilize solar and other forms of energy.

I also am unequivocally opposed to offshore drilling off our pristine Georgia coasts. While international oil interests stand to benefit, the Georgia economy and environment will suffer as a result.
