Senator Richard Blumenthal is serving his third term in the U.S. Senate, having been elected to succeed retiring Senator Chris Dodd in 2010. Senator Blumenthal has a long history in government fighting for environmental priorities, serving in the state House and Senate and 20 years as Connecticut’s Attorney General. As Attorney General, he was a vocal advocate for the need to combat global climate change, bringing suit against several coal-fired utilities in the Midwest for generating excess carbon pollution. 

As a climate champion and a vocal defender of important environmental laws and policies, Blumenthal supports efforts to strengthen the Clean Air Act, the Clean Water Act, the Endangered Species Act, and more. As a former member of the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation, he has fought for clean, renewable energy sources in Connecticut and to protect Connecticut’s natural resources. Blumenthal was proud to help pass the Inflation Reduction Act, the single largest investment in climate action in our nation’s history. Several crucial climate-related provisions Earl authored were enacted in the final package, including production and investment tax credits to incentivize wind and solar projects, a critical component in ending our dependence on fossil fuels. His environmental record has earned him an excellent lifetime score of 98% on LCV's National Environmental Scorecard
