It is also vandalism wantonly to destroy or to permit the destruction of what is beautiful in nature, whether it be a cliff, a forest, or a species of mammal or bird.
— Theodore Roosevelt

My goals:

  • Work with businesses to find sustainable solutions to protect the environment
  • Preserve national parks and wildlife refuges
  • Encourage innovation of sustainable energy to combat climate change

I intend to make certain that future generations can still enjoy this planet's natural wonders. The environment needs protection.

I believe in most cases the government can work with businesses to find solutions that both maintain the environment and keep business viable. If a business can't exist without irreparably destroying natural resources, then that business is not sustainable.

I am committed to preserving our national parks and wildlife refuges. I am also committed to ensuring all Americans have access to clean water. And especially here in the desert, it's important that we keep our water use at sustainable levels.

Finally, I am committed to participating in global efforts to reduce the human impact on climate change. To that end, I would encourage innovation and public adoption of sustainable energy sources. If we can't immediately eliminate our dependence on fossil fuels, at the very least we can work toward mitigating its effects.
