Jon Ossoff on Environment

 

 


Reverse Trump rollbacks of environmental standards

Q: Tighten or loosen environmental regulations?

Ossoff: Tighten. Will work to reverse Trump "rollbacks of clean air, clean water, and fuel economy standards."

Perdue: Mostly loosen. Roll back "stifling Obama-era regulations." Against reducing waste and emissions. Reduce plastic waste in oceans.

Aggressive protection of endangered species and habitats

I'll push for America to immediately re-enter the Paris Climate Accords. I'll work to reverse the Trump Administration's rollbacks of clean air, clean water, and fuel economy standards. I'll push for fast advances in sustainability--including a rapidly phased-in ban on single-use plastics, strongly enforced treaties to protect oceans and fisheries, aggressive protection of endangered species and habitats, increased fines for spills and contamination, and stricter controls on toxic chemicals.

Investigate failures to enforce environmental laws

Jon will be informed by scientists, not lobbyists, when it comes to environmental policy, and he will work to make Georgia a clean energy economic powerhouse.

Clean air and clean water are not controversial. They are essential to our health, our prosperity, and our quality of life. Jon will oppose and investigate failures to enforce environmental laws. He will support our national parks and work to conserve America's treasured wildlife and natural beauty.

Pro-GHG restrictions, according to PVS survey.

Ossoff supports the PVS survey question on greenhouse gases

Project Vote Smart inferred whether candidates agree or disagree with the statement, 'Energy and Environment: Do you support the federal regulation of greenhouse gas emissions?' PVS self-description: "The Political Courage Test provides voters with positions on key issues. Historically, candidates have failed to complete our test due to the advice they receive from their advisors and out of fear of negative attack ads."
