August 17, 2007
Thank you for contacting me about the threat of global warming. I appreciate hearing from you on such an important issue because it enables me to better represent the beliefs and values of our district.
Like you I, too, am concerned about the climate changes resulting from global warming. Congress should act to significantly reduce this serious threat to our planet by passing legislation that promotes energy efficiency measures and decreases our dependence on fossil fuels. Congress recently took an important first step by passing the bi-partisan Clean Energy Act of 2007, which increases the level of renewable energy development but there is still more work to do. You can rest assured that I will continue to work with my colleagues to reduce the threat of global warming and increase our commitment to renewable energy technologies.
Once again thanks for writing. I encourage you to continue to contact me about issues that are important to you.
