Daily News-Record (Harrisonburg, VA) – March 22, 2017
How do we reduce the trade deficit, create American jobs, stimulate the economy, undermine terrorism, improve our quality of life, and unify the nation with a sense of common purpose? By addressing the biggest challenge man has ever faced: climate change.
In doing so, we convert our energy system from one based on fossil fuels to one based on the sun’s energy, along with energy efficiency and environmentally sustainable practices. The result will be cheaper energy, greater exports of energy technology, elimination of dependency on Mideast oil, creation of millions of domestic jobs, and a less toxic environment.
Donald Trump’s plan is to ignore climate change and take us back to a 20th-century energy system and economy, a backward and reactionary strategy that will guarantee the United States will cease being the leader of the world.
