Jamie Raskin on Energy & Oil

 

 


Invest in clean energy to break our carbon addiction

Fighting Climate Change and Putting a Price on the Social Calamity of Carbon: In the State Senate, Jamie has worked hard to pass tough legislation to increase the renewable energy standards in our state energy portfolio, most recently cosponsoring and pressing for passage of the Greenhouse Gas Emissions Reduction Act to set a goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions 40% by 2030.

In Congress, Jamie will work to dramatically reduce greenhouse gas emissions to slow and halt climate change while investing in alternative clean energy technologies like solar and wind power that will permit us to break our dangerous carbon addiction. Carbon pollution can be reduced most cost-effectively through market-based approaches that put a price on carbon. Jamie will champion a sweeping carbon tax along with market-based solutions to stimulate renewable energy development and steadily and dramatically reduce carbon fuel consumption.

Supports federally developing renewable energy.

Raskin supports the PVS survey question on renewable energy

The Project Vote Smart Voter Guide inferred how candidates would respond to the question, 'Energy: Do you support government funding for the development of renewable energy (e.g. solar, wind, thermal)?' Project Vote Smart notes, "in response to the increasing unwillingness of candidates to answer issue questions, Project Vote Smart has researched Congressional candidates' public records to determine candidates' likely responses on certain key issues. These issue positions, from the year 2016, are provided [for candidates who] refused to provide voters with positions on key issues covered by the 2016 Political Courage Test, despite repeated requests. Historically, candidates have failed to complete our test due to the advice they receive from their parties and advisors and out of fear of negative attack ads."
