Energy, fossil fuels
Touts Texas as US leader on wind power. Seeks an “all of the above” approach to electricity generation, combining conventional with renewable sources: gas, coal, nuclear, wind, biomass, waste-to-energy, and solar. Would accelerate permit process for nuclear energy. Gets an ‘F’ from Iowa corn growers for ethanol and renewable fuels support.
Is “skeptical” about human-caused climate change. Would repeal EPA’s authority over greenhouse gases and eliminate any agency programs to restrict carbon dioxide emissions.
Would eliminate “activist” EPA regulations; would return EPA’s authority to states, confining it to environmental and cost-comparison analyses; would suspend “job killing” Clean Air Act regulations.
