GA6 current representatives

Our members of Congress are in the best position to solve the climate crisis through the policies they create and enact. That’s why it’s important to elect members of Congress who want to reduce carbon emissions and take action to solve climate change.

Georgia’s current members of Congress are Rep. Karen Handel, Senator Johnny Isakson and Senator David Perdue. They do not have position statements on climate change. In June 2016, all three supported the White House’s decision to exit from the Paris Agreement.


 

Handel

Rep. Karen Handel on the U.S. withdrawal from the Paris Agreement

The U.S. withdrawal “presents an opportunity to do the right thing in the right way. We need a fair agreement that doesn’t start with the assumption that American jobs should be sacrificed to the developing world in order to address the impacts of climate change.” – AJC.com

Re-election Date: November 6, 2018

Isakson

Senator Johnny Isakson on the U.S. withdrawal from the Paris Agreement

“The United States is one of the strongest countries in the world in our commitment to high environmental standards across all industries, including power production. Unfortunately, the Paris climate deal was yet another regulatory overreach by the Obama administration and should have been put forward for the advice and consent of the Senate. I will continue to work on commonsense approaches to energy production and the environment.” – isakson.senate.gov

Perdue

Senator David Perdue on the U.S. withdrawal from the Paris Agreement

“Today, President Trump chose to make a clean exit from the Paris Agreement. This agreement was a perfect example of Obama-era overreach in which the previous administration entered what should have been considered as a treaty without any congressional approval. The U.S. withdrawal is the next step in fulfilling President Trump’s promise to rescind burdensome regulations like the Clean Power Plan that are raising energy costs and stifling our economy, while still maintaining a seat at the table for future international climate talks. When other countries are not willing or able to fully adhere to the terms and meet these targets it ultimately puts American companies and workers at a tremendous disadvantage.” – perdue.senate.gov
