Renewable energy sources are the future of global transportation and power production.
The United States needs to do as it has always done in matters of technology: lead. The use of renewable energy sources reduces pollution, improves people’s health, and helps reverse the effects of climate change.
We must make every effort to ensure that the people who currently work so hard in the energy industry are not harmed by the transition away from fossil fuels.
It is a common fear that the use of renewable energy threatens the livelihood of those who work in mines or on oil or gas rigs. That isn’t the case and I would work to ensure that people, not corporations, involved in those industries aren’t left behind during that transition.
