Clean air and clean water are basic human rights. The preservation of protected lands and investment in sustainable technologies is imperative to that initiative. We cannot put the wants of business over the short or long term needs of the nation and the protection of its citizens.

Environmental Protection Agency

     The head of the EPA should always be a scientist or have a strong science background. I strongly believe in giving the EPA more enforcement power. 

Climate Change

     Dorchester and Queen Anne’s Counties are at the biggest risk of losing land to flooding and the rising ocean levels associated with global warming. We can easily see where the waterline keeps creeping inland. However, the entire District is affected at some level. We also need to conduct a survey to identify any local behaviors that are compounding the problem and putting us underwater faster.
