Take your position.There's no global warming - it's just natural climatic variation. And if there is a problem, we won't be affacted much.we should do nothing because the cost of dealing with global warming is far higher than the potential damage. We should perhaps sign on to some international agreements, but make only minimal financial commitments for now.This question is not counted in the answers for any candidate.We should establish a market-based solution for excess carbon emissions. The Kyoto Protocol should require developing countries' participation to make the solution work.Overuse of fossil fuels causes serious problems that we should deal with immediately. And green energy is absolutly a good option for us to Stop Global Warming.
Green energy includes natural energetic processes that can be harnessed with little pollution. Green power is electricity generated from renewable energy sources.
Anaerobic digestion, geothermal power, wind power, small-scale hydropower, solar energy, biomass power, tidal power, wave power, and some forms of nuclear power (ones which are able to "burn" nuclear waste through a process known as nuclear transmutation, such as an Integral Fast Reactor, and therefore belong in the "Green Energy" category). Some definitions may also include power derived from the incineration of waste.(Source: Wikipedia)
- Official Democratic Position
Democrats have supported increased domestic renewable energy development, including wind and solar power farms, in an effort to reduce carbon pollution. The party's platform calls for an "all of the above" energy policy including clean energy, natural gas and domestic oil, with the desire of becoming energy independent. The party has supported higher taxes on oil companies and increased regulations on coal power plants, favoring a policy of reducing long-term reliance on fossil fuels. Additionally, the party supports stricter fuel emissions standards to prevent air pollution.Source: Wikipedia
- Official Republican Position
The Republican Party has called for a more aggressive strategy for their development, especially for solar, wind, hydro, tidal, geothermal, and biomass energy. Rather than focus on federal research, however, the party believes in market-based research on the technology and partnerships between emerging renewable energy industries and current energy industries.
Over the past three or four years, the party’s stance on renewable energy has become stronger as it calls for the introduction of renewable energy resources into the mainstream. One of its most unique strategies is the advocacy of long-term tax credit for renewable energy sources.Source: republicanviews.org
