U.S. Senator Edward John Markey of Massachusetts has served in both the House of Representatives and Senate since first being elected in 1976. That makes him one of the longest serving members of Congress. He is a member of the Democrat Party, serving as Massachusetts junior Senator since being sworn in in 2013 after a special election victory. He won reelection in 2014. Sen. Markey is up for election in 2020 and is being opposed by Republican Kevin O’Connor.
“Markey is a progressive who has focused on climate change and energy policy and was chair of the House Select Committee on Energy Independence and Global Warming from 2007 to 2011. Markey is the Senate author of the Green New Deal.” Source: Wikipedia
While in the House, Markey was the lead, along with Rep. Waxman, in promoting legislation including a call for the development of a “Cape & Trade” program for greenhouse gases. The Waxman – Markey bill passed Congress in the summer of 2009.
Sen. Markey has long criticized Republicans who have opposed the supposed science that has driven the UN’s IPCC initiatives and Congress’s plan to impose restrictive legislation. He continues to support legislation despite the fact that the science supporting his legislative proposals has lost all credibility.
