Maggie Hassan’s website says, “Maggie believes that combating climate change is critical to our economy, our environment, our people, and our way of life – and she has made clear that we must take stronger action to support clean energy alternatives and curb the devastating effects of climate change…Maggie also supports the recent Paris Agreement on climate change and believes the United States must take action to implement the agreement while ensuring that our international partners also fulfill their obligations.” Hassan says her opponent votes to block the EPA from having the ability to reduce greenhouse gases. “The power of the climate issue as an electoral issue is growing if we are able to elect Maggie Hassan as one of our top 3, priority U.S. Senate races, that strength will continue to increase,” said Karyn Strickler, president of Vote Climate U.S. PAC.

Maggie believes that combating climate change is critical to our economy, our environment, our people, and our way of life – and she has made clear that we must take stronger action to support clean energy alternatives and curb the devastating effects of climate change. She is a strong supporter of the President’s Clean Power Plan and called on New Hampshire’s congressional delegation to do everything in their power to support the plan. Maggie also supports the recent Paris Agreement on climate change and believes the United States must take action to implement the agreement while ensuring that our international partners also fulfill their obligations.

In addition, Maggie established a long-term New Hampshire Energy Strategy that focuses on clean, renewable energy and combating climate change. She also joined the bipartisan Governors’ Accord for a New Energy Future to further state collaboration in energy planning and policymaking, and she was proud to sign the Under 2 MOU, a global compact among cities, states and provinces worldwide to limit the increase in global average temperature to below two degrees Celsius.
