Companies should be held accountable for polluting our planet. As our global temperatures rise, and our cities are left to pay for the impacts, private companies contributing to this climate crisis should pay for contributing to the problem. These funds could go to help cities fund resiliency efforts at a local level.
Florida can not afford another BP oil spill. Oil spills do not respect state lines- They destroy our economy, health, & environment. While our elected officials voted to protect our state waters from offshore drilling, at a federal level they are continuing to explore and drill. Instead of continuing to rely on fossil fuels, we should be putting all of our efforts to transition to renewable energy, which will provide clean energy independence and more jobs.
Florida should be known as the Solar State! Renewable energies do not contribute to additional heat trapping gasses, and create more jobs that are safer! This is a win-win for everyone!
Using renewable electricity and improving energy efficiency reduces overall demand.
Clean energy creates jobs in construction and operations that employ people for 40 consecutive years.
Clean energy saves money on fuel costs, and reduces health care costs, paying for itself in just 3 years from health care and climate cost savings alone.
