The wonders of this Earth are amazing. Unfortunately, the destruction of our natural treasures is happening before our very eyes, due to the land use choices we make and the effect of air pollutants on climate change. I want my grandchildren to inherit a world better than the one I came into, and that means fighting for a better environment with measures that also make sense economically.
Everybody deserves to breathe fresh air and drink clean water, and I promise to continue to work for both, if re-elected. Ethanol is a start, but I believe we need to move from corn-based to cellulosic ethanol, that is ethanol made from native prairie and other fiber-rich plants. I will continue to work to ensure new technologies are discovered here in Minnesota, bringing jobs and prosperity to the region along with cleaner air, purer water, and decreased dependence on fossil fuels.
