Promises about Environment on Kitz-O-Meter
Will not "let people drill for oil off the Oregon coast."
"We need a strategic climate and energy road map that lays out the practical steps to meet and implement that goal, and benchmarks against which to systematically and frequently measure our progress. During the course of my campaign, I will lay the groundwork for a strategic plan that integrates the state emission reduction goal, the Renewable Energy Standard, aggressive conservation and energy efficiency strategies, the Low Carbon Fuel Standard and the Renewable Fuel Standard into a comprehensive state Energy and Climate Strategic Plan."
"I will also create the authority to integrate all state policies and programs, such as transportation, energy, agriculture, land use planning and others, that have relevance to climate change and energy issues."
"I will pursue, along with our congressional delegation, the establishment of a National Laboratory in Oregon."
Will "simplify the existing complex and duplicative permit process for habitat restoration in a watershed by engaging all relevant parties in local decision-making."
Will "include carbon accounting as a part of the urban and suburban planning process, thus driving the transformation to higher densities and a focus on transit systems."
Will "institute an aggressive water measurement program and water user education program geared toward 'water rights and responsibilities.'"
