Climate change is real. Addressing it shouldn’t be a partisan issue – it’s an economic and national security issue that affects all of us. With 130 miles of coastline, New Jersey will pay a terrible price if we don’t take meaningful action to end our reliance on foreign fuels and transition to a clean energy economy.
But instead of leading New Jersey forward, President Trump and Congressman Frelinghuysen are putting us further at risk – feeding us a false choice between creating jobs, fighting climate change, and keeping our air and water clean. They have rolled-back dozens of environmental protections that safeguard our drinking water, preserve our air quality, and keep our kids healthy.
Congressman Frelinghuysen has voted over and over to weaken our clean air and water laws, and even voted to let cement plants release more mercury into our air and drinking water. It’s no surprise that Congressman Frelinghuysen has the worst environmental record of the entire New Jersey Delegation. In 2016, he earned an 8 percent rating from the League of Conservation Voters. That’s simply unacceptable.
