Climate Change

The overwhelming majority of scientists agree that climate change is real and that steps must be taken to address the threat to public health, our economy, and our national security posed by pollution that destroys our lungs and our environment. To address this global challenge, Congress needs to enact legislation that puts a price on carbon emissions and transitions our economy to renewable, homegrown sources of energy.

Minnesota has already done this. Our state has a strong renewable electricity and renewable fuels standard in place. As Congress considers policies to address this daunting challenge, I am working to ensure that any legislation includes robust emission reduction mechanisms, consumer protections against rate increases, and provisions to secure new economic opportunities for Minnesota farmers and manufacturers.
