The impact of man-made emissions on our environment is the single greatest threat facing humanity today. I absolutely support the move to renewable sources of energy, such as solar and wind. Renewable energy is not only safer, but it is getting cheaper and cheaper.
Emerging renewable technologies provide job opportunities for displaced workers, making a shift to clean energy good for our economy. We must also secure a clean environment for the world and its children, and ensure that access to clean air and water is a human right. That means regulating the pollutants we allow companies to pump into our soil, water, and air. First step: we must ban fracking.
