Energy and Environment
Democrats believe that access to clean air, clean water, and fertile soil is a right, not a privilege. With that in mind we support appropriate regulations to protect our environment as well as development of clean, renewable, alternative energy sources such as solar, wind, geothermal, etc. These sources help us maintain a leadership role in the world as well as provide good jobs for our people and a brighter future for generations to come.
Climate change is a major issue that needs to be addressed. With the recent and growing hurricanes in the south and south-east, the lack of rains in the north-west leading to horrific wild-fires, and thousand year storms becoming common-place, it is harder for people to deny the truth that is climate change. A long term plan must be addressed on how we can deal with the ever growing pressure humans place on the earth.
