ENERGY & THE ENVIRONMENT
Diana believes we must take steps to address climate change, which is a threat to our environment, economy, and national security. We must begin the process of weaning ourselves as a nation off of foreign oil – not just for the sake of the environment but also for our pocketbooks. Gas prices are hitting working families squarely on the chin. Instead of just watching as other countries invest in renewable energy, America should be doing everything we can to be the leader in development of alternative energy. If we seize this opportunity, we can reduce our dependence on foreign oil, create good jobs, and protect our environment.
Diana strongly supports environmental standards that keep our land, air, and water clean. In New York, we are blessed with some of America’s most beautiful natural resources known to man. Diana will fight to ensure that these resources are protected. We cannot continue to exploit our natural resources for the benefit of the few.
