GA08 Wants to Regulate Carbon as a Pollutant

Did you know an estimated 70% of Georgia 8th Congressional district (GA08) residents want carbon dioxide (CO2) regulated as a pollutant?

And according to the Yale Climate Opinion Maps, that includes the majority—58%of GA08 Republicans.

Public concern about climate change can shape the climate policy that Congress creates, but only if people who want climate solutions get out and vote. Our members of Congress respond most to the concerns of constituents who vote.

If we want climate solutions but don’t vote, then Congress won’t respond to our demands.
