No position statement on climate change

Handel has not issued an official stance on climate change.

In 2017, she stated in the video near the top of this page that Congress’ role in combatting climate change should be limited.


Supports exiting the Paris Agreement

In June 2017, she supported the White House’s decision to exit the Paris Agreement. In the Atlanta Journal Constitution, she said 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.


Anti-environmental voting record

Handel’s voting record shows a history of casting anti-environmental votes.
