Janice Hahn on Energy & Oil

 

 


Create 25,000 green jobs via clean energy market

Seeing solutions to a lingering recession and a local unemployment rate of more than 12%, Hahn announced her plan to create 25,000 green jobs. Hahn said, "My comprehensive plan creates 25,000 green jobs by making investments in clean, alternative energy, like wind and solar, reducing our dependence on foreign oil. It also advocates for emergency low-interest loans and tax credits for small and green businesses so that they can grow and create new jobs."
    The following six proposals offer an outline of Hahn's "Plan to Reinvest at Home Instead of Spending on Wars Abroad."
  1. Improve Federal Funding and Regulatory Policy for Green Energy
  2. Promote "Local Energy"
  3. Create a Stable Clean Energy Market
  4. Invest in American Innovation
  5. Build the Green Infrastructure of Tomorrow
  6. Level the Playing Field with Big Oil.

Take responsibility for climate change

Global climate change is one of the greatest threats facing humanity. Janice believes that climate change is the result of human activity, and that we have to take responsibility for the problem, and do what we can to avert the worst effects. Just as human beings are the cause, changes in human behavior can be part of the solution.

Thankfully, Los Angeles' utility will be off coal by 2020. Janice has pledged to work to achieve an aggressive national Renewable Portfolio Standard.
