Q: Do you support the federal regulation of greenhouse gas emissions?
Q: Should the state fund development of traditional domestic energy sources (e.g. coal, natural gas, oil)?
Q: Do you support providing financial incentives to farms that produce biofuel crops?
Q: Do you support state funding for improvements to California's energy infrastructure?
Q: Do you support enacting environmental regulations aimed at reducing the effects of climate change?
