Human activity is the major factor driving climate change

Q: On Climate Change: Believe that human activity is the major factor driving climate change?

Duckworth: Yes

Kirk: Has said climate change is real, but questions the role of industrial emissions: Kirk recently acknowledged that human activity contributes to climate change, but historically has questioned this and voted against bills that would have addressed climate change.

Q: On Climate Change: Should government limit the levels of greenhouse gasses in the atmosphere?

Duckworth: Yes

Kirk: No. Opposes carbon tax and EPA regulation of greenhouse gases

Q: On Renewable Energy: Support government mandates and/or subsidies for renewable energy?

Duckworth: Yes

Kirk: Yes. Also supports fossil fuel subsidies.

Support light rail and low-carbon modes of transportation

The rising cost of gas is a major area of concern for families across the 8th district, many of whom have long commutes. We need to advance vehicle fuel technologies and build more efficient homes, buildings, and factories. Ultimately, the solution is to secure American energy by investing in safe and responsible domestic oil while moving towards a clean energy future. I will support light rail and other low-carbon alternative modes of transportation. We cannot have our future determined by the price of foreign oil and instead need to invest in expanding and modernizing our clean energy alternatives.

I strongly support clean energy innovations that begin with conservation, energy independence, and the ingenuity of American business before we irreparably harm the environment for our children and grandchildren.
