Sen. Sullivan: natural gas is the answer

March 20, 2019

While we hear frequently from Alaska's Senator Lisa Murkowski on the issue of climate change, junior Alaska Senator Dan Sullivan has climate thoughts too. In an interview with KTUU-TV, the member of the Senate Armed Services Committee said the best way to reduce greenhouse gas emissions it to "ship clean, burning Alaska natural gas to Japan, to Korea, to Taiwan, to China...That would do more to help reduce greenhouse gas emissions than almost any other thing that we can do."

"You come to Alaska, you see that climate change is clearly happening," Sullivan said. "There's no doubt about it. It's happening all over the state."

Alaska is on the front lines of climate change and earned its own chapter of the Fourth National Climate Assessment.
