Marcia Squier on Environment

 

 


End the War on Oil, for national security AND environment

Regarding prioritizing green energy: We need to be off the grid with renewables ASAP, not only for national security reasons, but also for environmental and humane reasons. Our current government exploits fossil fuel resources and uses interventionism to disguise it. In order to end the War on Oil, and the deaths of millions of innocent people (mostly non-white), we need alternative sources of fuel. Expanding the green energy industry will create jobs, which will create more taxable revenue for the States, enabling more things like infrastructure repair and other restorative measures. But first, we need an educated workforce that can handle the growing industry. I believe that all of these things are intertwined, and therefore must all happen-- somewhat simultaneously or in quick succession.

EPA should regulate for-profit corporations

Q: Do you support or oppose the statement, "Fight EPA regulatory over-reach"?

A: Oppose: I support the EPA regulating businesses/corporations, which are profit-driven and therefore often disregard environmental impacts.

Repeal the DARK Act: require full GMO labeling

I want to repeal/replace the Help America Vote Act, the Telecommunications Act, the Controlled Substances Act [illegalizing marijuana], the Patriot Act, the NDAA, & the DARK Act [requiring limited GMO labelling]. I also want to reappropriate military funding towards renewables (off the grid), education, health care, and infrastructure. Regarding trade, I only support bilateral trade agreements. No multinational trade agreements.

Federal funding for Flint; and prosecution for poisoning too

Q: How would you rate the State of Michigan's response to the Flint water crisis?

A: Poor. I believe that more individuals need to be held accountable for the poisoning of an entire region. Strict precedence needs to be set here in Michigan because similar issues like this are popping up all over the country, and the people need to rest assured that they come first and foremost in the law of the land. I also believe that the water-line infrastructure needs to be completely overhauled, and that the residents of Flint should not only receive clean water, but they should also receive automatic, full-coverage health insurance, and a living expense stipend or relocation expenses.

Q: Should Congress provide funding to help Flint?

A: Yes, Congress should provide funding to help Flint and other cities across the U.S. to eliminate lead service lines. If elected, I will vote in favor of federal funding of this critical issue. It is our obligation and duty to take care of our own.
