Environment

Climate change is the most immediate and pressing challenge globally, nationally, and locally right here in South Florida. We are already seeing the consequences with stronger hurricanes, higher temperatures, more frequent flooding, and beach erosion.

As a member of the Safe Climate Caucus, Lois is fighting back against President Trump’s attempts to roll back decades of environmental protections. She believes we should rejoin the Paris Climate Agreement, has cosponsored critical legislation to make America carbon neutral by 2050 or sooner, and will work to implement the recently released principles set forth by the House Select Committee on the Climate Crisis. She used her position on the Appropriations Subcommittee for Energy and Water to advocate and secure billions of dollars for green energy projects, restore our beaches, and maintain our waterways. Lois has fought especially hard to secure record funding to restore and protect the Everglades, which is not only a beautiful national park, but home to hundreds of endangered plant and animal species, as well as drinking water to eight million South Floridians.
