Climate Change

Angela knows urgent action is necessary to address the climate crisis and protect the environment. As County Executive, she issued an Executive Order for Prince George's County, setting ambitious targets to reduce the 2005 emission levels by half before 2030 and net zero by 2045. Angela believes the U.S. should adopt a similar timeline. In Prince George's County, she initiated investments in electric vehicles and sustainable building design to move towards a greener future. Additionally, she implemented a county-wide composting program to reduce and reuse organic waste.

She strongly supports President Biden's efforts to address climate change, including the measures passed in the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law and Inflation Reduction Act. These pieces of legislation prioritize investments in clean energy and aim to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

If elected to the Senate, Angela will be a vocal advocate for expanding tax credits for clean energy, ensuring that all U.S. Government purchases, from buildings to vehicles, align with emission goals. She will also work towards the U.S. actively participating in and fulfilling its obligations to international efforts in combating climate change. Angela expresses her readiness to proudly co-sponsor Senator Van Hollen's Polluters Pay Climate Fund Act, which seeks to ensure that the largest contributors of fossil fuel emissions take responsibility by paying their fair share in mitigating the effects of climate change.
