Protecting Our Environment
Climate change is here, and we are the chief cause. 7 We now find ourselves at a critical juncture in the history of our planet, which has seen more natural disasters in the first two decades of the 21st century than in any period in recent history. As seas continue to warm and rise, Long Island is being held hostage by a government chock-full of climate change deniers, who only do so at our peril. I want to ensure our region leads the nation in pioneering bold strategies to combat climate change by developing a comprehensive environmental policy as a matter of public health and safety, as well as our national security.
