Tammy Duckworth on Energy & Oil
Kirk: Has said climate change is real, but questions the role of industrial emissions: Kirk recently acknowledged that human activity contributes to climate change, but historically has questioned this and voted against bills that would have addressed climate change.
Q: On Climate Change: Should government limit the levels of greenhouse gasses in the atmosphere?
Kirk: No. Opposes carbon tax and EPA regulation of greenhouse gases
Q: On Renewable Energy: Support government mandates and/or subsidies for renewable energy?
Kirk: Yes. Also supports fossil fuel subsidies.
I strongly support clean energy innovations that begin with conservation, energy independence, and the ingenuity of American business before we irreparably harm the environment for our children and grandchildren.
