Energy and the Environment
It is crucial now more than ever that the U.S. and world leaders act urgently to address the issue of climate change. We must ensure the funding and independence of organizations like the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) so that they can provide necessary climate science research.
Other steps we can take to promote energy and environmental reforms include:
- Enacting comprehensive energy reform that optimizes the uses of current energy sources while incentivizing the innovation of new and renewable sources of energy.
- Rejoining the Paris Climate Accords.
- Empowering the EPA to exercise oversight of those harming the environment, particularly drilling, fracking, and pipeline construction.
- Supporting stronger land-use policies in Texas.
