Press Release

“Today, the House took a bold first step to confront the climate crisis and protect our planet by keeping us in the Paris Climate Agreement and laying the groundwork for further climate action. I agree with the overwhelming majority of scientists who recognize that climate change is real, and it’s essential that our country honors its commitment to work with the rest of the world to cut carbon pollution and address this crisis together.”

 

“Protecting our environment and natural resources is necessary for both our planet and our economy. In Kansas, we are uniquely positioned to capitalize on renewable energy, as our region has some of the highest wind production potential in the world, to create good-paying jobs while growing our clean energy economy. We will continue to look for innovative solutions to combat the climate crisis, grow our economy,  and leave behind a healthier world for our children.”
