Robert Reich on Environment

Former Secretary of Labor; Democratic Challenger MA Governor


Supports Smart Growth and protecting open space

Open space is a high priority. I will encourage communities to participate in the Community Preservation Act, to protect open space. I strongly support the Environmental Bond Bill -- essential to protect and restore rivers, streams, lakes, and water supplies, as well as habitats and open spaces across the Commonwealth. And I will reauthorize the major open space accounts at a level that allows managers to plan and allocate resources over the longer term. I’ll extend the Self-Help and Urban Self-Help

World environmental agency should impose emissions rules

Rather than try to weaken international institutions, progressives should push them in a different direction. We need a World Bank that coordinates real debt relief for third-world nations; an IMF that conditions loans on investments in education and strong social safety nets rather than on fiscal austerity; a global patent office that forces drug manufacturers to slash prices on pharmaceuticals needed by poor nations; a global health institution capable of attacking AIDS and cracking down on the trafficking of women and children for prostitution; a world environmental agency that imposes strict emissions rules; and an international peacekeeping force that responds immediately to tribal genocide.
