Climate Change is Not a Political Football

The scientific evidence is overwhelming and irrefutable that human activities contribute to climate change.We must act to reduce the impact of human activities on our environment.

I will not debate the science with those who use talking points over evidence. There is enough evidence for us to take it as fact. But we can and should debate how to best reduce our impact and protect our planet for future generations. If we fail, we damage the environment, perhaps irreparably, for future generations.

I pledge to work with my colleagues in Congress to protect the future for Marylanders and our children. Without addressing the problem of climate change now, Marylanders will continue to suffer property damage, illness, loss of life, and degraded economic security to the trends of extreme weather events caused by increased greenhouse gasses.
