1. What are the individual's views on whether climate change is real and caused by human activity?

On her campaign Issues, Energy and Environment page, she says "After years of arguing about whether we are experiencing climate change as a result of our human activities, the debate is over. Climate change is real, and it is impacting our planet and the Granite State as we speak. We need our policy makers in Congress to finally acknowledge the reality of climate change and the effect it is having on our environment".
