Climate change was among the issues discussed by Senator Ed Markey and his opponent, Congressman Joe Kennedy III, at a debate on Monday.

Ben Hellerstein, State Director for Environment Massachusetts, issued the following statement:

“This week, viewers across the Commonwealth had the opportunity to see what we’ve known for decades: Ed Markey is a champion for clean air, renewable energy, and a safe and healthy planet.

“It’s one thing to talk about how much you care about the environment. It’s another thing to actually lead. Markey has been a champion on these issues for as long as he’s been in office. He’s fought for — and won — policies to limit pollution from cars and trucks, expand solar and wind energy, make our homes more energy-efficient, and stop the Keystone XL pipeline. And he’s laid out a bold vision for a future powered by 100% clean energy, co-authoring the Green New Deal resolution with Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

“In these challenging times, when our environment is threatened more than ever by polluting industries and a changing climate, we need a proven leader like Ed Markey to represent Massachusetts in the United States Senate. That’s why we are working to re-elect Senator Ed Markey.”
