    Three Candidates, Three Energy Policies – Climate Change On the issues: Climate change, environmental policy divide candidates

    Eric DuVall, June 6, 2016 (united Press International)

    “Some of the issues being debated in the 2016 presidential campaign start with a generally accepted premise from Hillary Clinton,Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump…Climate change is not one of them…Clinton and Sanders believe the science showing the planet is warming due to pollution created by humans, and the gradually warming temperatures are causing dramatic shifts in climate and weather across the world with potentially devastating consequences…Trump, like many Republicans, is deeply skeptical of that science and believes the climate change ‘crisis’ Democrats decry is really a political ploy to offer justification for more taxes and regulations on oil and gas companies they already do not like…

    “…Clinton terms it ‘an urgent threat and a defining challenge of our time’…[and Sanders describes it as] ‘the single greatest threat facing our planet’…[Trump] has called it a ‘hoax’ on multiple occasions…Clinton has pledged to reduce the nation's carbon emissions by 30 percent in 10 years…[Sanders said he will ban all oil and gas lobbyists] who he says spend millions on campaign contributions to buy influence over energy and environmental legislation in Congress…Both candidates support the Paris Climate Agreement…Trump proposes opening up more land for oil and natural gas exploration…pledged to undo Obama's executive orders related to climate change…[and ‘rip up’ the Paris Climate Agreement…” click here for more

    Three Candidates, Three Energy Policies – New Energy On the issues: Climate change, environmental policy divide candidates

    Eric DuVall, June 6, 2016 (united Press International)

    “…On the question of energy production, Clinton and Sanders both advocate a shift toward renewable sources of energy…[Trump] wants to reduce regulations on fossil fuel companies because their benefits] outweigh any potential environmental problems…Clinton has set a goal of installing 500 million solar panels in the United States over the next decade and has called for enough renewable energy production to power every American home by the middle of this century…Sanders also has placed heavy emphasis on replacing fossil fuels with renewable energy, calling for a ‘100 percent clean energy system’ that excludes fossil fuels and nuclear power…He says funding for the transition to clean energy should come from closing tax loopholes benefiting oil and gas companies and replace it with a tax on carbon emissions…Trump has said he will restore U.S. coal production…[Clinton pledged] to put coal mines ‘out of business’…” click here for more

    Three Candidates, Three Energy Policies – Keystone And Fracking On the issues: Climate change, environmental policy divide candidates

    Eric DuVall, June 6, 2016 (united Press International)

    “…The Keystone XL pipeline proposal for a massive, 1,200-mile pipe to ship light crude oil stretching from the Canadian tar sands across the U.S. plains to American refineries on the Gulf of Mexico] generated years of political controversy…After six years of environmental review, the Obama administration rejected the proposal…[It was the single largest point of contention between Clinton and Sanders on environmental issues…[But after] the Obama administration finally rejected the proposal, Clinton did as well. Sanders criticized Clinton's late decision…Trump has also taken a nuanced position…[He said he would consider authorizing the project if the Canadian builder commits to share the profits with American communities where the pipeline runs…

    “…[On natural gas hydraulic fracturing, or [fracking, which critics say represents environmental dangers and proponents say] is safe and could unleash America's vastly untapped natural gas reserves, Trump is on record supporting it] and said the industry could create 2 million jobs in seven years if restrictions are lifted…Clinton has not proposed the outright ban on fracking advocated by Sanders and others on the left. She does, however, propose a number of restrictions, including retaining the ban on fracking on federal land, and in communities and states where laws are on the books banning the practice [which, she has said, will leave] many places in America where fracking will continue…” click here for more
