Pramila Jayapal: Stand up to climate change deniers & toxic fracking

Pramila will stand up to the climate change deniers in Congress and fight for immediate action on climate change--pushing to reduce carbon emissions in the U.S. and around the world. Pramila understands the dire consequences any further delay will have on our environment, public health, and local fishing and tourism industries.

In Congress, Pramila will push for a clean energy economy that invests in alternative energies, like solar and wind power, and put an end to toxic fracking and deep water drilling that threatens our environment. She will support research and development of next-generation technologies that curb greenhouse gas emissions and improve our health while promoting economic growth and protecting our most vulnerable communities.
