Craig O'Dear for US Senate

Environment

Environmental protections are important. Americans must embrace rather than shun the opportunities of new energy sources and new, more environmentally-aware, ways of doing things.  We should not celebrate the dismantling of environmental protections.

Americans must embrace rather than shun the opportunities of new energy sources and new, more environmentally-aware, ways of doing things.  We should not celebrate the dismantling of environmental protections. Most Americans want to protect the environment for their children and grandchildren and beyond.  Environmental protection is classic populism, and the notion that environmental protection is an enemy of business is a patently false notion.  Business, jobs, prosperity, and growth can all be achieved in the furtherance of environmental protection.  This is a huge American opportunity—not a threat.  We must embrace change, not deny it.  A government focused on protecting its citizens must search for and find business-focused ways to protect the environment.  America must reclaim its rightful place as a world leader on this issue.
