Issue Position: What Are Your Environmental Priorities? What Specific Measures Would You Like to Enact?

Just as with military strength, we must lead the world in environmental protection. This means we should ratify the Kyoto protocol and should participate fully in the international agreements that will preserve our world for our children.

Nationally, it means we must build cleaner cars and invest in cleaner energy. I would support increases in the CAFE standards to 40 miles per gallon, as well as revising CAFE tests to more accurately measure the fuel economy of cars, SUVs, and trucks. Further, we should eliminate the loophole that allows SUVs and light trucks to have weaker CAFE standards.

In addition to improving fuel efficiency, we need to harvest the benefits of clean energy. We should produce 20 percent of our electricity from renewable energy sources by 2020. This is a realistic goal. We can do it by establishing strong energy-efficiency standards for houses, buildings, and appliances, and by providing incentives for development of alternative energy sources.
