Candidates' views on environmental issues
Is man causing climate change?
"Yes...I do believe man plays a role."

Should the EPA regulate greenhouse gases?
"No."
"Yes."
Would you support a cap-and-trade program, a market-based approach that provides economic incentives to reduce carbon emissions?

"We should not be wedded to a particular solution… Wherever we can find the opportunities to cut carbon in the atmosphere, we should take them."
Do you support the Endangered Species Act?
"Yes."
"Yes."
Do you support tax credits for renewable energy?
"Yes. But not spending plans that favor certain companies."
"Yes. This is an investment we should make."
Do you support the Nuclear Regulatory Commission’s extension of the Pilgrim plant’s license?
"Yes."
"No. Because NRC didn't first address safety issues."
Do you support expanded hydraulic fracking, a controversial and increasingly used method of obtaining natural gas?

Do you support extending the Keystone Pipeline, the controversial plan to ship crude oil from Canada to the Midwest?
"Yes."
"No."
Do you support Cape Wind?
"No."
