Do You Care About Renewable Energy?

Then here is whom to vote for on November 4!

What is it?

  • Renewable energy is a means for individual people to take small step towards both reducing oil imports (see Keystone pipeline for more), and also reducing U.S. greenhouse gas emissions (see Climate change for more).

  • "Alternative energy" has come to mean mostly solar power and wind power (and other sustainable power sources other than nuclear energy), which currently need financial support to remain competitive (supporters would say that's because oil & gas already receive subsidies; opponents would say it's "crony capitalism" to "pick winners and losers").

  • Recent legislation includes:

How does it get passed?

It takes 218 Congresspersons to pass renewable energy bills in the House of Representatives. It takes 60 Senators in the Senate (a super-majority is needed on this issue, to avoid filibusters).

What's happened so far?

The last major House bill, (Better Use of Light Bulbs Act), failed in the House with 233 votes -- this bill would have repealed the requirement for energy-efficient light-bulbs. (A 2/3rds vote was needed, which meant 51 more votes were needed; or bring up the bill in a way that only requires 1/2 the vote, in which case opponents had 20 more votes than needed).

The last major Senate bill, on keeping funds for alternative fuels, passed with 62 votes in the Senate (12 more than needed, but if opponents had filibustered, then only 2 more than needed).

What will the candidates running in my area on November 4 do?

You'll see below the names of everyone running, for whom we can predict their vote on this issue. They are organized alphabetically by State in one of the two lists below!

The PRO list are those running in 2014 who have supported renewable energy.

The CON list are those running in 2014 who have opposed renewable energy.

An interpretation key appears at the bottom.

Get your friends and family and friends on Facebook and Twitter and elsewhere to help elect 218 and 60 and renewable energy will pass!

    How to interpret this page

  • The list above includes candidates for Senate and House seats in 2014.
  • All of the above ratings are based on multiple sources of information.
  • The sources of information include legislative votes; bill sponsorships; group ratings; campaign websites; campaign debates; and biographical books.
  • Each information source is rated as supporting the topic, or opposing the topic.
  • The number of opposing sources is subtracted from the number of supporting sources; if the net sum is positive, the candidate counts as "Pro"; if negative, the candidate counts as "Con."
  • Click on the candidate's name to see the list of information sources, and whether we rate is as supporting or opposing.
  • Click on the date of each information source to see a full excerpt and context.

    Key for Pro votes:
  • An aboslute YES vote: 5 or more net supporting information sources, indicating consistent and long-standing support
  • A solid YES vote: 3 or 4 net supporting information sources, indicating substantive support
  • A likely YES vote: 1 or 2 net supporting information sources, indicating some support but not enough for certitude.
  • If a candidate has a net zero supporting information sources (or no information sources), that candidate is not listed above at all.

    Key for Con votes:
  • An absolute NO vote: 5 or more net opposinginformation sources, indicating consistent and long-standing opposition
  • A solid NO vote: 3 or 4 net opposing information sources, indicating substantive opposition
  • A likely NO vote: 1 or 2 net opposing information sources, indicating some opposition but not enough for certitude.


  • The above list is not fully inclusive; many House challengers are not included, but all House incumbents are eligibla.
  • All major-party Senate candidates (and incumbents) are eligible; and most Senate challengers are, too.
  • Some of the candidates listed above lost in the primary, but are still listed.
