For those who do not know, I had previously run for the United States Congress and I fully intend to do so again in the year 2014. As a proponent of science and energy policy reform, the issue of global warming/climate change and how the US should respond to mitigate it is of special importance.
I have begun work on a detailed policy outline on the topic of greenhouse gas emissions and how to reduce them while maintaining a policy that does not result in draconian cuts on energy usage or resort to the use of carbon taxation. This is accomplished by targeting sectors that produce the most greenhouse gasses and attempting to facilitate change through the creation of economically-beneficial alternatives.
The current draft is in outline form. It is not a full report but only a skeleton version of the areas that will need to be addressed. Still, it is sixteen pages long even as is.
It is very important to remember that this is only a draft. This does not represent the final policy statement and is subject to change. It is a first draft of what is expected to be several revisions before a final, detailed report is put together. Some of the items may end up being dropped if they turn out to be too expensive or have too little benefit. In the first draft, all potential areas are included. It thus may be viewed, at least in some ways, as a “wish list” of policies that should be considered.
The reason I am publishing this is I am hoping to get some constructive criticism and suggestions from readers. I recognize that readers of this blog are often very insightful. Also, I pride my campaign on being as open as possible and listening to others for input.
Again, remember it is not the final revision and is not what I have officially stated as my fixed policy. It is only a draft under revision.
