Key Point: “I am proud to announce my support for the Green New Deal. No issue is more important today for our children and our grandchildren than addressing climate change.

“I am proud to announce my support for the Green New Deal. No issue is more important today for our children and our grandchildren than addressing climate change. And if we do so successfully, our nation will be stronger, our economy will be stronger, our communities will be more resilient, and the futures of our children and grandchildren will be much brighter.

We see the effects of climate change every single day. The horrific wildfires that are truly unprecedented in California. The communities in the southeast, especially [ the ones] that have been decimated by so many hurricanes over the last decade. And daily at home, in my communities that I represent on the North Shore in Massachusetts. Fisheries are being put out of business by warming oceans, and rising sea levels are threatening the coastal communities that have been home to people for generations. So we have to take action on this. And it’s no secret why a new generation of leaders in Congress and around this country are stepping up to address climate change.

So I’m proud to support the Green New Deal as part of this initiative. I’m proud to work on it to make sure that we get meaningful change, meaningful legislation, meaningful progress, on an issue that is so fundamentally important to our future.”
