Energy and Environment
North Carolina’s landscape and environment are the heart of the state’s character. We all have a responsibility to be responsible stewards of our environment. North Carolina has seen first-hand that the health of the environment directly relates to the health of its citizens and economy. The preservation and restoration of the state’s natural landscapes ensures a clean, healthy environment for generations to come.
There is no denying that Climate Change and the rise in global temperatures results in extreme ecological changes. As a member of the Congressional Safe Climate Caucus, Congresswoman Adams is pushing for strong and proactive environmental policies that combat climate change, curb pollution, invest in renewable energy, and promote sustainable development solutions. She believes it’s time to start investing in more renewable energy sources and develop new green technologies. Investing in energy and the environment is effectively investing in the economy.
