Alan Khazei on Energy & Oil

 


Invest in renewable energy like solar, wind, and biofuels

Our dependence on fossil fuels poisons our environment, weakens our economy, and undermines our national security. Climate change is a grave threat to our planet and we cannot afford to delay action any longer. Alan supports investments in renewable energy sources like solar, wind, and biofuels. Massachusetts is a pioneer in cutting-edge science and technology, and we can create high-skill, high-paying jobs that help preserve our environment while saving our economy for future generations.

Implement cap-and-trade to reverse climate change

As Senator, Alan would support efforts by Congress to implement cap and trade policies. The window to reverse climate change is closing by the day, and Alan believes we need federal restrictions on harmful greenhouse gas emissions. By allowing businesses to trade and profit from energy savings, we will make the private sector part of the solution to climate change, and allow clean technologies to compete fairly in the marketplace.
