About Our Chapter
Vote Climate! See below for positions of the candidates on energy and climate change.
 
Climate change knows no party.  Know what the candidates stand for on Climate before you vote. 

Experts agree:
  • It's real
  • It's us (human-caused)
  • It's bad (for people)
  • It's solvable.
Why vote climate? 
  • 97% of climate scientists are convinced human-caused climate change is happening.
  • UGA scientists say Climate change is harming Georgia now, in 3 ways - vulnerable urban-Atlanta area populations face heat and flooding crisis’ (pregnant women, student athletes, the elderly, the sick, and the poor), Georgia coastal areas experience nuisance flooding on rain-free days to sea level rise and agricultural regions are experiencing more drought.
 
What can Georgians have an impact on Climate?  The most important actions we can take is to reduce our energy waste and fully embrace clean energy.  When we do that, we clean up our air and water, and we all immediately enjoy better health.
  • Market based climate solutions can be the most effective. 
  • “The Conservative Case for Carbon Dividends” has been recently proposed and supported by prominent Republican statesmen such as former Reagan Secretary of State George Shultz and Reagan Chief of Staff James Baker. 
  • Citizens’ Climate Lobby proposes a similar non-partisan carbon pricing proposal.  The well-researched “Carbon Fee and Dividend” plan would reduce carbon emissions by 50% over 20 years, while growing the economy and jobs. 
  • Both of the carbon pricing ideas support returning all fees to Americans on a per-capita basis, protecting the middle class and lower income Americans from higher out-of-pocket costs.  At the same time, pollution is reduced, the market picks the best sources of energy.
 
The Candidates and climate.  Where do they stand?
 
Climate is now impacting Georgians.  Our leaders in Congress are in the best position to slow and prepare for climate changes.  Know your candidate’s stance on climate and the impact of their proposals for today and future generations.

Bruce LeVell(R) – www.levellforcongress.com  Supports Trump - Does not address energy or climate or any issues!

Jon Ossoff (D) – www.electjon.com
Jon will be informed by scientists, not lobbyists, when it comes to environmental policy, and he will work to make Georgia a clean energy economic powerhouse.
There is a clear scientific consensus that climate change is driven by human activity and that it threatens global prosperity, health, and security. This is not just the opinion of activists; it is the studied conclusion of our country’s distinguished scientists. Our military and intelligence agencies agree. Jon will oppose efforts to undo the climate change agreement reached last year in Paris and will work to make the United States a global leader against climate change.
Clean air and clean water are not controversial. They are essential to our health, our prosperity, and our quality of life.  Jon will oppose and investigate failures to enforce environmental laws. He will support our national parks and work to conserve America’s treasured wildlife and natural beauty.
My kind of guy!
