My name is Johan and I’m 30 years old. I am scared about the effects climate change will have on our generation and the next. Already people on the west coast are being labeled as climate change refugees due to being displaced from the wildfires.

I support Rep. Ocasio-Cortez’s resolution to create a House Select Committee for a Green New Deal in Congress. United Nations climate scientists tell us we have just twelve years to move our country off fossil fuels, to avoid catastrophic climate disaster.

We need a Green New Deal to create millions of green jobs, move our country off fossil fuels, and protect working people of all backgrounds. Congress members should support this resolution. The Green New Deal already has 10 Reps supporting it. I ask for our new elect Reps. in New Jersey Tom Malinowski, Mikie Sherrill, Andy Kim and Jeff Van Drew to support the Green New Deal.
