Protecting our Environment

We only have one world - we must work
with those we share it with to keep it healthy
and capable of supporting future generations.

I will:

- Create more jobs by investing in sustainable energy industries

- Ensure we participate in the Paris Climate Accord

- Fund climate change research

- Regulate our air and water quality

- Preserve farmland and National Parks

I have: 

- Placed cap on CO2 emissions

- Banned MTBE (a carcinogenic gas additive)

- Required LEED building standards and green technologies in new construction

- Worked to prohibit the sale, introduction and propagation of invasive plant species in Suffolk County

- Preserved historic farmland in Suffolk County, including Sherwood-Jayne Farmstead and Detmer Farm
