Building Our Future

A Vision for

Energy & Sustainability

Climate change is not just an environmental issue; it’s a pressing national security concern for me. The impacts of climate change, such as increased global instability, sea level rise, and infrastructure vulnerability, demand a proactive and comprehensive response. I support legislative efforts like The Climate Change National Security Act and endorse policy recommendations for a national strategy on climate security. These are critical steps toward safeguarding our nation and promoting global stability. My platform advocates for leadership prioritization, realistic risk assessment, and preparation for future climate disruptions. Leveraging the expertise of agencies like the Department of Defense to mitigate security risks while promoting green energy initiatives is crucial to our strategy.

Embracing Climate Action and Sustainable Agriculture

Agriculture holds a pivotal role in both the economy and the ecology of Colorado and our nation. Recognizing the agricultural sector's impact on carbon and methane emissions, I will support smart agricultural practices that transform Colorado into a net carbon and methane sink. By creating partnerships between scientists, universities, and farming communities, we can implement climate-smart policies that not only address climate change but also support the economic viability of our farmers and ranchers. My commitment to sustainable agriculture includes supporting soil conservation programs, USDA research grants, and initiatives that empower young farmers, reduce corporate influence on pricing, and ensure equitable practices across the industry.

Accelerating the Transition to Clean Energy

The transition from fossil fuels to clean renewables is imperative for mitigating climate change and securing a sustainable economic future. Congress must encentivise solar integration in new constructions, prioritize renewable energy infrastructure, and support workforce transitions from oil and gas to green energy sectors. Initiatives like the revival of the Civilian Conservation Corps for reforestation and sustainable agricultural programs, alongside innovative solutions for carbon sequestration, underscore our holistic approach to building a sustainable future. I envision a collaborative effort to achieve a zero-carbon electrical grid by 2040, creating job opportunities and fostering economic growth through clean energy technologies.

A Call to Action for Climate, Agriculture, and Security

My platform is a call to action for immediate and sustained efforts to combat climate change, promote sustainable agriculture, and address the national security implications of our warming planet. By embracing diversity, compassion, and innovation in our climate policies, we can ensure a resilient, sustainable, and secure future for Colorado and the nation. Together, let's commit to climate action that not only addresses the immediate challenges but also lays the foundation for long-term prosperity and environmental stewardship.

The time to act is now. Confronting the economic disparities that plague our nation is essential for the creation of a more just and inclusive society.
