Our best chance to tackle climate change is doubling down on infrastructure

As a newly elected member of Congress, I've absorbed a lot of information in a short time.

While many of the lessons I've learned concern things like navigating D.C.'s Metro, I've also had a chance to suss out where there are opportunities for the 116th Congress to make real, lasting progress on key issues.

Our community made it clear throughout the campaign that one of the top priorities for Congress must be addressing climate change. To that end, I am honored to have joined the Sustainable Energy and Environment Coalition.

And recently, I wrote an opinion piece for The Hill about the opportunity we have in the 116th Congress to tackle climate change. My argument? Infrastructure.

Our Infrastructure is failing us.

Regardless of party affiliation, most lawmakers see that the federal government needs to step up and address the deterioration of our nation's infrastructure.

Embracing the power of clean energy and green technologies is America's most viable short-term way to mitigate long-term man-made climate change.

Reversing the course we're on will be good for business, creates jobs, and improves everyone's health.
