97% of leading climate scientists agree that climate change is a serious, man-made problem that needs to be addressed. And yet, America is not taking action to deal with this challenge because one of our two major parties has embraced the skepticism of a tiny minority of scientists. It is not coincidence that the only place where American policy is ignoring an overwhelming scientific consensus is one where our richest corporations have a vested interest in our ignoring the science. And we cannot afford to gamble with the only planet we have, and with the future well-being of our children and grandchildren, because dishonesty has corrupted our discourse. As a candidate for Congress, one of my priorities is to bring honesty and responsibility to the politics of climate change.
