State of Missouri secondary Archives: on Energy & Oil

Tim Shepard: Incentivize development and growth of green economy

In order to protect our natural resources and maintain healthy ecosystems which sustain an ever-growing population, we must push for programs that create career training and support for workers in carbon and methane intensive sectors to transition to good, union jobs in green industries. We must also invest publicly to incentivize the development and growth of new and existing sectors in a green economy to build the world for the 21st century and beyond

Given the levels of greenhouse gas emissions still being poured into the atmosphere, we must work to reduce our own emissions by at least 40%, as well as working closely with other countries to provide economic support for every nation to ensure they can enjoy the comforts of modernity in a sustainable way. This includes efforts to drive the expansion of low- and zero-emissions energy production.

Trudy Busch Valentine: We need to transition from fossil fuels to renewable energy

Trudy knows climate change is an undeniable scientific fact and that addressing this crisis must be a top priority. Trudy believes that we need to reduce our carbon emissions drastically, ensure clean air and water, and transition from fossil fuels to renewable energy sources--like the solar power her own ranch in Missouri uses. Renewable energy sources cut costs long term, create new industries and new jobs, and lower our dependence on other countries for oil.
