(3) In 2014, she voted for a House amendment calling on Congress to recognize that man-made carbon pollution contributes to climate change and that climate change has a wide range of negative effects. (4, 5) In 2015, she voted against HR 2042, The Ratepayer Protection Act, which would have prevented implementation of the Clean Power Plan.

The signing of the Paris Climate Change Agreement solidifies a strong belief that curbing climate change is a priority for our global agenda. I hope this will build momentum for further concrete and sustainable joint efforts to halt global warming in its tracks. This commitment towards a cohesive global reduction of carbon emissions is crucial to preserve our planet for future generations. Our work towards reducing global temperatures will not stop with the signing of this agreement.” (8)

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

In an April 22, 2016 Facebook post, she wrote, “Stewardship of our precious Earth is an inherited and shared responsibility. The signing of the Paris Climate Change Agreement solidifies a strong belief that curbing climate change is a priority for our global agenda.

I hope this will build momentum for further concrete and sustainable joint efforts to halt global warming in its tracks. This commitment towards a cohesive global reduction of carbon emissions is crucial to preserve our planet for future generations.

Our work towards reducing global temperatures will not stop with the signing of this agreement. Investments in clean, renewable energy are crucial to enable us to meet the goals established by the Paris Climate Change Agreement. I will continue to support policies which support the use of these technologies and aid the United States in becoming a flagship in clean energy use”. https://www.facebook.com/LorettaSanchez/posts/10154086325721168
