South Florida is ground zero for climate change, and we must lead the way in combating it. We are already seeing its effect in stronger storms and increased flooding, and we cannot afford to wait for action. Through her work at the Coral Restoration Foundation, Debbie has worked to slow the impacts of climate change on our marine life, and knows there is no time to wait when it comes to our environment. Debbie believes we must move quickly to a low fossil fuel economy, invest in clean energy, minimize greenhouse gas emissions, and invest in innovative infrastructure to protect our communities from sea-level rise. Florida, the Sunshine State, should be leading the way in solar energy production and reducing our reliance on oil and gas.
