Questions AMC recommends we ask political candidates about climate change:
- The science is clear: climate change is happening and humans are contributing to it. Do you believe that we are experiencing a period of human induced climate change?
- Will you reject the manufactured â€œdebateâ€ and speak out in support of climate science?
- Will you support limits on greenhouse gas emissions? If yes, will you support the reduction recommended by scientists of 80% below 1990 levels by 2050?
- Will you protect EPAâ€™s ability to enforce their legal mandate to protect clean air and regulate greenhouse gas emissions?
- What would you do to increase energy conservation and efficiency in the country (or state)?
