Duke Aiona on Energy & Oil

 


Fund alternative energy over traditional energy

Q: Do you support state funding for the development of alternative energy?

A: Yes.

Q: Do you support state funding for the development of traditional domestic energy sources (e.g. coal, natural gas, oil)?

A: No.

Q: Do you support providing financial incentives to farms that produce biofuel crops?

A: Yes.

Q: Do you support state funding for improvements to Hawaii's energy infrastructure?

A: Yes.

Q: Do you support enacting environmental regulations aimed at reducing the effects of climate change?

A: Yes.

Aiona adds, "I helped launch the Hawai'i Clean Energy Initiative, which is helping to transform Hawai'i from the most fossil fuel dependent state in the nation into a worldwide leader in clean energy. And as Governor, I'm committed to pursuing a clean energy future free of the dependency of oil. This will not only benefit the environment, it will create jobs and keep money in our economy that is otherwise being spent on foreign sources."
