Climate Change

“I’m running to approach problems like I do in the lab, where we first agree on the problem and then work towards a solution, rather than coming to the table with a list of asks.”
— Molly Sheehan

It is time for a practical approach in congress. A system where a problem is addressed based on the best possible solution for the people, and not for political gain. After earning my PhD in biochemistry and biophysics I’m eager to apply my scientific skill-set to work for the people in Pennsylvania's 7th congressional district.

So many of the issues facing our country are improved upon when scientific reasoning is applied. Research is available on all of the topics our decision makers in congress debate. However researched positions and pragmatic solutions are often overlooked in favor of funding and political gain. I would like to upset that system. I’m running to overcome the practice of being in debt to the special interests that help win elections. I’m running in order to save our environment, because science says it needs saving. I’m running because congress needs someone who knows how to protect our fields, streams, and backyards from pollutants and toxic industry practices. We need an advocate for our children and for preventative long term solutions that look beyond the next election cycle.

Climate change presents serious threats to both public health and national security and there is still time to drastically improve our future outcomes. I believe investment in green energy research is the key to removing our dependence on oil from unstable regions which in turn slows climate change. As our environment shifts and becomes unpredictable, resources will become scarce in certain regions, leading to wars and increased global instability and health disasters. Crafting policies that will prevent such instability is paramount for preventing the future loss of both American citizens here at home and our soldiers stationed abroad.

Support me as I advocate for the people in PA’s 7th district to:

  • Get the Facts through to Congress that Climate Change is Real

  • Work with Leaders from All Parties in South East PA to Find Local, Practical, and Economically Feasible Solutions to Climate Issues

  • Fight to Bring Green Not Just Renewable Sources to Our Energy Grid

  • Advise Congress on Important Risks Associated with Waste and Pollution

  • Protect our Groundwater, Soil and Air

  • Utilize the Fantastic Scientific Contributions that Individuals and Organizations have Contributed in the 7th District to Improve Our Environment for Generations to Come

Science - a system or method reconciling practical ends with scientific laws

I invite you to join me in the effort to reconcile the needs of the PA 7th with pragmatic scientific solutions. We should not have to accept an aversion to fact-based research and informed decision making in our national policies. We shouldn’t leave the fate of our planet to people who reject scientific fact!
