Ending Fossil Fuels Subsidies

350CT is working to end unnecessary and harmful  subsidies going to the oil, gas, and coal industries by asking our candidates for federal office these 4 questions:

1. Do you support policies and legislation that would encourage the creation of green jobs and transition the United States to renewable energy?

2. Promoting walking, biking and public transportation have been shown to change behaviors that result in widespread obesity, greenhouse gas emissions, and increasingly higher costs for road, highway, and bridge reconstruction. Do you support infrastructure improvements that would decrease car usage in favor of biking, walking, and public transportation?

3. Do you support ending all fossil fuel subsidies — for oil, coal, and natural gas — which will total $113 billion over the next decade?

4. Will you support Federal legislation to reduce fossil fuel consumption and increase renewable energy production to reduce our nation’s impact on the environment and curb climate change?

We are starting to receive replies and you can view them here.   If your candidates have not responded yet please let them know that you care about this issue and would like them to reply.  If they have responded and you agree please thank them.  If you don’t agree please let them know.
