Seth Moulton views climate change as the most pressing issue of our time and is actively committed to working for solutions to combat the climate crisis.
An Iraq War veteran, Moulton completed four tours of duty as part of the Marine Corps. After serving in Iraq, Moulton worked for a company building high-speed rail between Dallas and Houston, Texas.
In Congress, Mouton will make it a top priority to develop policies that will reduce carbon pollution and help grow the clean energy economy. Moulton will also work to expand commuter rail and develop strategies that will promote the long term health of Massachusetts’ fisheries.
Moulton joins the U.S. House after defeating incumbent Representative John Tierney in the primary election. Tierney has a lifetime score of 97% on LCV’s National Environmental Scorecard through 2013.
In his own words:
“Climate change is the most important global issue we face today. It is Congress’ job to ensure that the US is taking an active role in advancing a strong agenda to mitigate climate change and its effects.”
