Not only is climate change real, it’s a crisis. And the crisis isn’t coming, it’s here. - Jon Ossoff
The flooding and extreme weather we have seen in coastal Georgia and across the South are sobering reminders of how devastating climate change can be in our daily lives, especially in underserved and rural communities. - Raphael Warnock
Climate change is real, human activity is contributing to it, and it’s a crisis.
I continue to support an all-of-the above energy policy. This includes encouraging and incentivizing clean energy policies as well as exploring the possibility of offshore energy exploration. While I wish we were at a point where we could solely rely on clean energy, we're not there yet. As we research and develop new innovative solutions to transition to renewable, cleaner energy, I believe it's irresponsible to not at least see what is out there off the coast. Buddy Carter, quoted by SavannahNow
Burdensome regulations from the EPA and every other federal agency just stop businesses in their tracks with forms, red tape, delays and cost. - Drew Ferguson
Look, I think that, clearly, there have been changes in the climate. I am not a scientist, so I read all of that and take it all in - Karen Handel
Climate change represents an existential threat to our environment. I agree with the Department of Defense: climate change is one of the most urgent national security issues of our time. The science of climate change is conclusive and indisputable: humans are the principal cause of it and our planet is warming at an extremely alarming rate. - Lucy McBath, Representative District 6
It is not the federal government's responsibility to regulate greenhouse gas emissions, or any aspect of our environment for that matter. The (Environmental Protection Agency) is an unconstitutional agency and should be dissolved. Climate change is fake news. - Andrew Clyde, quoted by Atlanta Journal-Constitution
Rather than imposing burdensome regulations like those included in the Paris Climate Agreement or the Green New Deal, we should find innovative solutions to address climate change – without stifling our economy. - Jody Hice, Letter to Supporters
President Trump is making the right decision withdrawing from the #ParisAgreement on climate change, and I fully support his decision. - Barry Loudermilk
What the two sides of the aisle disagree over is not really climate change, we all want to be good stewards, what we disagree over is the power of the government. Rick Allen, quoted by Georgia Recorder
...as climate change worsens, I have worked closely with my colleagues in the House of Representatives to support evidence-based approaches in protecting our environment for the benefit of future generations of Georgians. Climatologists and environmental advocacy organizations predict Georgia will face an increase in droughts and extreme heat days as a result of worsening climate conditions. - David Scott
