Janet Napolitano on Environment

Democratic AZ Governor; Designee for Secretary of Homeland Security


Limit our greenhouse gas emissions & focus on solar energy

Arizona must also stay on the path toward greener future. We must continue to implement forest health measures that create new industries and protect our forested communities. We also must work to limit our greenhouse gas emissions through the Western Climate Initiative, and move forward in building a strong renewable energy sector, particularly with respect to solar energy. The entire nation is going in this direction--and Arizona has much to gain by being a leader.

Bring together all stake-holders in forest management

In 2003 state government, firefighters, and local communities came together as never before to confront the quiet catastrophe of dry, overfueled forests. I convened a forest health summit in Prescott to bring together all stakeholders - including those who normally share no common ground in forest management. In addition, I directed that prison inmate crews work alongside local contractors to build fuel breaks and clear evacuation corridors around communities like Pine, Strawberry and Flagstaff.
