Matt Lieberman: Rejoin Paris Accords; invest in clean energy

The climate change crisis is real, and we need to take bold, immediate action to combat the effects. It is critical that we acknowledge the science and support steps like reducing the use of fossil fuels with the goal of achieving net zero emissions, re-entering the Paris Climate Accords, and investment in clean energy technology to protect our planet for future generations. We must and we can reach net zero emissions by 2050 or sooner.

Jason Carter: Spend time & resources developing solar & wind

Q: What is your plan to increase solar and wind energy in Georgia?

A: We have to spend time and resources developing those alternatives energies. I've sponsored bipartisan legislation to make it easier for people to finance solar installations. We need to free up the private sector to do that because right now they are not free to do it. I have spent a lot of time with the solar industry folks and with advocates promoting solar energy. I am a strong supporter of those alternative energies.
