Quote "America and the world have had quite an awful time the past few years with wild weather--drought, floods, tornadoes, hurricanes, wind, heat. Many people in our country have died in these natural disasters, and New Hampshire has had its share of trouble... We must break our dependence on oil for environmental and security reasons, and we must do it now. I believe there should be an Apollo-type program to address these issues, advance renewable energy, and slow down climate change."


Leadership: Representative Carol Shea-Porter has championed clean water, ocean exploration, marine education, and renewable energy. She has consistently supported bills like H.R.1310 (Clean Water Protection Act) and H.R.21 (Oceans Conservation, Education, and National Strategy for the 21st Century Act) during her two terms. Representative Shea Porter continues to work to protect New Hampshire’s oceans and vulnerable coastal communities to prepare for the impacts of climate change. The global environment has an ally as Representative Shea-Porter will now serve in the 113th congress and continue to take a leadership position in critical environmental legislation.
