Saving Our Planet

Climate change is the defining issue of our time.  According to the Atmospheric Environment Research Division of the World Meteorological Organization (WMO), greenhouse gas concentrations are at an all-time high, with the past four years—2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018—registering as the four warmest years ever recorded.  If current trends continue, experts expect a worldwide temperature increase of 3-5 degrees by the end of the century—a development that will upend economies and destroy ecosystems around the world.

Rather than acting to combat climate change, however, Representative Perry—according to The Patriot News—“applauds efforts by the Trump Administration to take America out of the Paris Climate Accord” and wants to eliminate “regulations on greenhouse gas emissions.” 

Such proposals are dangerous. They threaten our future. As your representative in Congress, I will advocate for fact-based solutions designed to reverse the alarming trends of climate change. By working together, we can meet the challenge of saving our world and, in doing so, create a new era of economic prosperity for all.
