Jared Huffman on Energy & Oil

 

 


Opposes ANWR, offshore drilling & tar sands pipeline

Our quality of life, health, future economy, and national security depend on creating new clean energy jobs in California and throughout the country, and reducing our dependence on fossil fuels. Jared opposes offshore drilling in California, the environmentally destructive Canadian tar sands pipeline, and oil exploration in sensitive areas like the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. He supports higher fuel efficiency standards, low-carbon fuel standards, renewable energy portfolio standards, and other clean energy policies that spur job creation while significantly reducing energy use, including innovative community-driven models like Marin Clean Energy and Sonoma County's Energy Independence Program.

Regarding nuclear, Jared supports California's moratorium on nuclear plants and has gone further by calling to match Germany's ambitious plan to decommission all nuclear power plants within a decade and replace them with increased renewable generation.
