Peter Shumlin on Energy & Oil

 


Energy projects statewide: reduce consumption & create jobs

Vermont's use of stimulus funds has helped organizations statewide switch to renewable energy sources, implement efficiency measures, and hold down power costs.

These funds have gone directly to communities to save taxpayers money, reduce energy consumption and create jobs. We have used our federal stimulus award to create long-term energy savings for Vermonters and to speed our transition to a clean energy future.

Supports carbon cap & green jobs

Support a meaningful carbon cap and renew commitment to the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI).

The federal EPA should recognize the success of RGGI, design any national greenhouse gas regulations consistent with its innovative approach, and allow state participation in RGGI to serve as an alternative method to meet any new federal regulatory requirements.

There is an opportunity to make RGGI more effective in capping greenhouse gas emissions by lowering the cap level.

Move off our addiction to oil

Protecting our open lands is a solemn responsibility to our children and future generations of Vermonters, [including] making the move to a sustainable, local agricultural economy.

On a global level, as we move off our addiction to oil, huge money is going to be made. This new economy has the potential to make the industrial revolution and the tech boom of the past look small. Peter believes that Vermont is uniquely situated to get a piece of this economic opportunity.
