Rob Hogg: Wind & solar power work; Keystone pipeline unneeded

The good news is that solutions to climate change already are known, State Sen. Rob Hogg says. It's just a matter of getting Congress to act on implementing them: "We have lots of solutions that work," Hogg said. We don't need the Keystone pipeline. We don't need the Bakken pipeline."

What is needed is more solutions like the hybrid and all-electric vehicles Hogg talked about at the kick-off of his "climate solutions" tour at an electric vehicle charging station at Paulson Electric in Cedar Rapids. The tour that will include a stop at Luther College's solar array.

"These solutions work," Hogg said. "Solar power, wind power, other renewable energy sources, electric vehicles, fuel-efficient cars, rail, walkable and bike- ag solutions that build the carbon content of our soil and retain the nutrients on the land, investments in natural resources and investments in infrastructure to safeguard people and property from extreme weather events."

Rob Hogg: It is time to act on climate change

Hogg would like to see Congress act soon on renewing the wind energy tax credit that was allowed to expire in Dec. 2014, extend the solar energy tax credit before it expires in 2016, support the EPA's clean power plan that sets state thresholds for sustainable energy & support an upcoming UN international agreement on climate change. "It is time to act on climate change," he said. "Millions of Americans are acting to address climate change. We need Congress to join the fight against climate change.

Bernie Sanders: Climate change partly causes rise of terrorist groups

Q: You say you want to rid the planet of ISIS. In the previous debate you said the greatest threat to national security was climate change. Do you still believe that?

SANDERS: Absolutely. In fact, climate change is directly related to the growth of terrorism. And if we do not get our act together and listen to what the scientists say, you're going to see countries all over the world--this is what the CIA says--they're going to be struggling over limited amounts of water, limited amounts of land to grow their crops ask you're going to see all kinds of international conflict.

Rob Hogg: Expand solar power, wind energy, ethanol

In the Iowa Legislature, I have worked with citizens and legislators across party lines to pass legislation to assist Iowans with flood recovery and invest in flood protection; to expand solar power, wind energy, ethanol, and biodiesel for jobs and the environment; to invest in soil conservation and clean water; to strengthen education from early childhood to college and job training; to provide health insurance for children and low-income working families.

Tom Fiegen: Transform away from fossil fuels, and towards sustainability

The United States must lead the world in tackling climate change, if we are to make certain that this planet is habitable for our children and grandchildren. We must transform our energy system away from polluting fossil fuels, and towards energy efficiency and sustainability. Millions of homes and buildings need to be weatherized, and we need to greatly accelerate technological progress in wind and solar power generation.

Unless we take bold action to address climate change, our children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren are going to look back on this period in history and ask a very simple question: Where were they? Why didn't the United States of America, the most powerful nation on earth, lead the international community in cutting greenhouse gas emissions and preventing the devastating damage that the scientific community told us would surely come?

Rob Hogg: Address climate change with solutions that work for economy

Getting Congress to address climate change is critical, Hogg said. "This is a very large challenge," he said. "And there's not a single solution. There are thousands of solutions. And the good news is a lot of those solutions work for our economy. They create jobs, help businesses, help farmers, help consumers. So we need to do a whole range of things to address climate change. And we'll talk more about that in detail, but the bottom line is we need to act."

Rod Blum: Create jobs & lower costs with coal & oil shale

Government regulations are out of control--look no further than the E.P.A. Regulatory costs are estimated to be $1.75 trillion annually. Those costs are paid ultimately by YOU--the consumer.

I support utilizing American energy resources. Shovel-ready jobs are in the energy sector. America is the Saudi Arabia of wind, coal, natural gas and oil shale. Not only can we create more jobs by going after these energy sources, but we can keep costs down and reduce our trade deficit.

Pat Murphy: Opposes Keystone Pipeline; supports alternative energy

LEADING ON RENEWABLE ENERGY: Pat has been a leading proponent of Iowa's alternative energy industry in the Iowa House and will remain a staunch ally in Congress. He'll push for an increased national renewable fuels standard to expand the use of ethanol and biodiesel and support tax credits that reward the use of alternative energies like wind and solar.

PROMOTING RESPONSIBLE DEVELOPMENT: Pat supports efforts to expand Iowa's job base and promote economic development, but in a way that is responsible and considers all the costs involved--including public health and global warming considerations. He stands with local communities that have imposed moratoriums on sand fracking in Northeast Iowa, and in Congress, Pat will push for more research and development into next-generation technologies that curb greenhouse gas emissions while promoting growth in manufacturing. Pat is opposed to the Keystone Pipeline because it doesn't create lasting, longterm jobs while endangering our largest aquifer.

Bruce Braley: Supported Keystone Pipeline initially, then rejected it

Braley, a congressman since 2006, defended flip-flopping on the Keystone Pipeline. Republican ads have suggested he opposes the pipeline because of the support he's getting from [Super-PAC billionaire Tom] Steyer. "When the pipeline was first brought before Congress, there were a lot of promises made. That's why I voted for it in committee," Braley said. "But then when it came for a vote on the floor, United States, and there was no guarantee it was going to create a significant number of jobs that were going to benefit Iowa."

Ernst said she does not know if climate change is man-made. Braley attacked her for wanting to eliminate the Environmental Protection Agency and the Clean Water Act. "I do believe in protecting our environment," said Ernst. "I drive a hybrid car, and my family recycles everything. So I don't know the science behind climate change. I do believe in protecting our environment, but without the job killing regulations that are coming out of the EPA."

Joni Ernst: Meeting with Big Oil doesn't make me feel uncomfortable

Billionaire Tom Steyer's new ad against Republican Joni Ernst slams the Senate hopeful for opposing the renewable fuel mandate in Iowa. The 30-second ad buy by Steyer's NextGen Climate group highlights a meeting between Ernst, ExxonMobil and the American Petroleum Institute (API).

While ExxonMobil and API oppose the mandate, which requires refiners to mix a set amount of ethanol and other biofuels into the nation's fuel supply, Ernst is quoted in a clip stating the meeting with industry didn't make her "feel uncomfortable."

The ad scolds Ernst for "her big oil backers," which NextGen claims are "trying to gut Iowa renewables."

While the ad blasts Ernst for being against the renewable fuel standard, Steyer has criticized ethanol in the past. In an interview in 2010, Steyer said ethanol was not the way to go. NextGen also has routinely criticized any expansion of fossil fuels, and continued use of them in order to cut greenhouse gas emissions.

Terry Branstad: Keep corn-based ethanol in nation's fuel supply

Branstad said he wanted to come up with a plan for repairing crumbling bridges and roads that didn't include raising the gas tax, which he said would hurt poor Iowans. Branstad also spoke about his efforts to maintain the amount of ethanol in the nation's fuel supply, given Iowa's role as the nation's leading producer of ethanol, a fuel additive primarily made from corn.

Hatch questioned tax cuts the state gave to a fertilizer plant that located in southeast Iowa, asking "why are we giving these kinds of incentives to corporations, instead of looking where job growth really is, it's in the small towns, it's in the small businesses."

Branstad argued that the deal created jobs for state residents. He also attacked the fiscal policies of the previous Democratic governor, seeking to tie Hatch to a leader that he said didn't balance the books.

Jack Hatch: Solar energy grants instead of utility special interests

Jack Hatch says it is "disturbing" that Governor Branstad returned a federal grant that was to be used to find ways to help the solar energy industry grow in Iowa.

"Not to be controlled by the special interests of the utility companies that pressured his department to return the million dollar grant," Hatch says. "That in itself shows the interests of this governor, not so much in really renewable energy, but protecting the larger corporations at the expense of the smaller producers and the individual homeowners that could benefit dramatically from this."

Hatch says the solar industry is poised to make the same kind of economic impact on Iowa as wind turbines. "The governor has backed away from this state's ability to enter into the solar market by his refusal and his returning of a grant back to the Department of Energy that would be a modest approach to us beginning our solar energy capability," Hatch says.

A spokesman for Governor Branstad issued a written statement: "Jack Hatch can continue to bloviate from the sidelines, but all Iowans know that the Branstad-Reynolds administration has fought to expand and protect American energy resources so that Iowans have cheaper costs at the pump, their homes and their businesses," said Tommy Schultz, Branstad-Reynolds communications director.

Sam Clovis: Obama's "Climate Resilience Fund" just redistributes wealth

President Obama is set to announce a new initiative called a "Climate Resilience Fund," estimated to cost American taxpayers $1 billion. "It seems the President is a little late in realizing that climate resilience ought to be a topic of interest for his administration. Communities across America struggle each day to build resilience. How cynical of the President to use 'Climate Change' as the impetus to redistribute more wealth," said Sam Clovis, conservative candidate for the US Senate.

"Serious research and hard work have gone into building resilience in communities around the country," continued Clovis. "The President's plan is nothing more than a grandstand play to take attention away from his failed administration. Of course, one has come to expect such deception and diversion from this administration. It is hard to believe that so many in whom we have entrusted our governance could be so truthfully challenged."

Sam Clovis: Exploit every form of energy, underground and above ground

There is no reason the United States should not be energy independent in 10 years. The effects on our economy of gaining energy independence would be immediate and long-lasting. The trade balance would move from the negative side of the ledger to the positive side. Our current reliance on oil from countries that are hostile to the US would be eliminated. World geopolitics would be significantly more stable and Americans would have to worry a great deal less about having to police the world.

Energy independence includes expanding and exploiting every form of energy from that found underground to all available sources found above ground, as well. Wind, solar, nuclear and bio-fuels should be further cultivated to balance energy sources and to reduce our reliance on fossil fuels.

Michele Bachmann: I opposed cap-and-trade, including Lightbulb Choice Act

Q: There's an expression "Minnesota Nice." And some people believe that both of you have tested it in recent weeks. Gov. Pawlenty said you have no accomplishments in Congress?

BACHMANN: When you were governor in Minnesota you implemented cap and trade in our state and you praised the unconstitutional individual mandates and called for requiring all people in our state to purchase health insurance. You said the era of small government was over. That sounds more like Barack Obama, if you ask me. During my time in the US Congress I have fought all of these unconstitutional measures as well as Barack Obama.

Q: Isn't that about the worst thing you can say about a fellow Republican, that he reminds you of Barack Obama?

BACHMANN: The policies that the governor advocated for were cap and trade. When it came to cap and trade, I fought it with everything that was in me, including introducing the Lightbulb Freedom of Choice Act so people could all purchase the lightbulb of their choice.

Chuck Grassley: Biodiesel is not controversial, unlike ethanol

Both candidates stressed the importance of renewable energy in Iowa and focused on biodiesel and the soon-to-expire tax credit.

"There's not controversy about biodiesel," Grassley said, saying that nearly everyone sees its value, unlike ethanol.

Conlin mentioned that Grassley voted against bills that would have provided for an extended tax credit. The credit was attached to a bill for unemployment workers. "So concerned was Sen. Grassley about not helping those out of work that he voted against the biodiesel tax credit," she said.

Grassley said a number of provisions regarding the tax issues [extending the biodiesel credit] would pass easily, perhaps even unanimously, if they were standalone bills. However, attaching them to other bills makes them bad pieces of legislation.

Roxanne Conlin: Focus on the sun, the wind, and biomass

The US must invest in clean, home-grown, renewable and sustainable energy to remain the leading superpower in the 21st Century. The resources we can use: the sun, the wind, corn, and biomass are readily available and do not require unfair trade agreements and do not further harm the environment. But to make use of our clean energy resources, we must accelerate the building of the smart grid across the nation's heartland to accelerate distribution of this new energy from where it is produced to where it is needed.
    Moving toward energy independence serves three important goals:
  1. It creates new and permanent American jobs.
  2. It protects our environment.
  3. It enhances our national security by decreasing the amount of money that we send to nations that train and harbor terrorists.
I see this issue as a moral imperative. For too long, elected officials have been focused on the next election and not the next generation. I will focus on the next generation exclusively.

Bob Krause: 1978: Supported bipartisan gas tax increase

Krause has held 17 jobs since 1972, mostly in local and state government and the military. The bulk of his work has involved transportation. In 2008, he spent four months abroad, working on proposals to reduce traffic congestion in the United Arab Emirates.

Krause points to a gas tax increase he helped pass in 1978 as evidence of bipartisan cooperation. The legislation won support from more Republicans than Democrats, he said. Krause chaired the House Transportation Committee during two terms.

Christopher Reed: Drill for more American oil to reduce gas prices

Reed advocated for drilling for more American oil to bring down the price of gasoline and create jobs. “My opponent has no desire to drill for oil--none. His plan is simply to tax production and expand government,” Reed said. “That will never put one dro of fuel in your tank. My plan is to drill here, drill now and drill often.”

Reed said domestic oil sources would help in the meantime while alternative energy sources such as wind and solar power are developed into a more viable means of energy. Reed also urged energy conservation, but said that should come from individual responsibility, not from a government mandate.

In contrast, Harkin argued drilling on the intercontinental shelf is expensive and would do little to immediately bring down oil prices. Instead, he argued for developing technologies such as an electric-powered car and cellulosic ethanol in addition to developing wind and solar energy. “We need an energy program that doesn’t just chase the last barrel of oil,” Harkin said.

Christopher Reed: Not ready to jump head first into biofuels

Q: What is your view on the usage of biofuels such as biodiesel and ethanol?

A: Obviously, Iowa would be at the forefront of bio-fuel technology. However, it needs to be reasonably priced, clean and efficient. I believe that Iowa would reap the benefits of bio-fuels as the Middle East has from oil. I want this success for all Iowans and other American farmers. But I am not quite ready to jump head first into it without first making sure it is the best suit for America.

Christopher Reed: Coal & nuclear have gotten a bad rap

Coal has gotten a bad rap from the EPA. It is billed as an evil, dirty fuel. Now, that being said, I know coal is a major player in providing energy for many Americans. It is no secret that we need more sources of energy and more power plants to provide it to the people who need it.

I would still say that I believe nuclear energy is the cleanest, cheapest form of energy. Nuclear power gets a bad rap from the press behind EPA and radicals on the left. I think we need more nuclear plants.

Mitt Romney: No-regrets policy: energy independence and CO2 reduction

I adopt what I call "no regrets policies": Policies that will allow us to become energy independent and will have as one of their by-products, reduction of the CO2 that we emit, the greenhouse gases that we emit. So let me tell you the kinds of things that I'd like to do.

With regards to our developing more energy, I want to see us use more of our renewable resources: bio-diesel, bio-fuel, ethanol, cellulosic ethanol. I want to see us developing liquefied coal if we can sequester the CO2 properly. I want to see nuclear power. I want to see us develop our own oil off-shore, and in ANWR.

On the other side of the equation, in addition to developing our energy, we have to be more efficient in our use of it. And that means more fuel efficient vehicles. It means more energy efficient homes. The combination of more efficiency and the generation of more domestic-sourced energy will allow us to become energy independent. And that has as the benefit, of reducing our emissions of CO2.
