From Gary Johnson’s Our America Initiative [not found] website:
"One important question for our era is: How do we create clean, affordable, renewable energy?"On The Issues"
Directives from a climate conference in Copenhagen may have an only marginal impact on global CO2 emissions (especially if some developing countries don’t comply), but they would have a tremendous impact on the daily lives of people like you and me. By raising the costs of energy as much as 25% cap and trade schemes would cripple the American economy and break the budgets of families that are already struggling to make ends meet.
The best thing the government can do to ensure this happens, is to not stand in its way."
