“On the House Committees on Natural Resources and Science, Space, and Technology, I will advocate to fulfill our responsibility to leave this world better than we inherited it. America must continue to be an innovative leader in the fight against global climate change.”
Leadership: Congressman Beyer believes America must continue to be an innovative leader in the fight against global climate change. He supports intelligent conservation policies that preserve our natural resources and an energy policy that makes smart investments in clean and renewable energy to lower costs to the American taxpayer while protecting the air, land, and water. Congressman Beyer has also fought to protect aquatic ecosystems from seismic testing, recently sponsoring H.R. 2158 to ban these harmful activities off the East Coast. He believes that marine life and biodiversity are essential not only to coastal environments, but to local and regional tourism, recreation, and fishing industries.
