Ed supports a balanced, all-of-the-above energy plan which includes responsibly developing fossil fuels while investing in clean energy like wind, solar, biofuels, geothermal, and other renewable energy sources. The 7th Congressional District is home to the National Renewable Energy Lab which is the world’s premier lab on the forefront of energy efficiency and developing clean and renewable energy technologies. Ed believes we must reduce the serious threat of climate change by promoting and incentivizing energy efficiency measures and decreasing our dependence on fossil fuels. Promoting energy independence will unleash American technological innovation, research and development, create jobs, and strengthen our national security.
Ed also believes we need to protect public and private lands to preserve them for future generations. Federal lands needs to remain under federal protection and everyone should have access to our national parks, national monuments, and national wildlife refuges.
