Policy Positions
Do you support a swift transition to 100% renewable energy, like wind and solar? *
Please say more about what you’d do if elected to bring about a 100% renewable energy economy that works for all of us.
(For example: publicly funded renewable energy projects, a 100% renewable electricity standard for utilities, electric vehicle incentives, a schedule for decommissioning fossil fuel power plants, etc.)

Do you support a moratorium on all new fossil fuel infrastructure, like pipelines and fracked gas power plants? *
Please say more about what you’d do if elected to stop the expansion of the fossil fuel industry and keep fossil fuels in the ground.

Your answer
Do you support a just and equitable transition to a fossil free economy that works for all of us? *
Please say more about what you’d do if elected to ensure a just and equitable transition. We’re interested in climate policies that seek to remedy existing environmental and social injustices.
(For example: renewable energy and public transit in underserved communities, project labor agreements with local unions to build renewables, community-owned renewables, a federal job guarantee for former fossil fuel industry employees, reparations for communities most impacted by fossil fuel pollution, etc.)
Your answer
Do you support investigating fossil fuel companies based on reporting that shows that fossil fuel executives have buried and spread disinformation about climate science? *
(For more context: InsideClimate News has done detailed investigative reporting showing that Exxon and other companies understood the risks of climate change 50+ years ago and suppressed the research instead of taking action. Investigations into Exxon have launched in New York, Massachusetts, and more.)
Please say more about what you’d do if elected to investigate the role of fossil fuel executives in burying climate science.
