Environment

I believe the state of California is overdeveloped. If we are going to keep California livable, environmental concerns must be a high priority. I support public lands and the acquisition of them for long term conservation as a high priority. We must deemphasize usage of fossil fuels but do this in a transitional manner so that those who would lose jobs due to this philosophy would be able to obtain new ones in the non-fossil fuel energy industry. I oppose fracking. Using nuclear power as an energy source is of concern to me (I do not really like the idea).

The recycling system is broken in California. This will need to be addressed in the California legislative system. I support the idea of a recycling hotline (24/7/365) and chat room that would allow residents in California to ask questions about recycling. We must work to eliminate recycling contaminated containers that can not be used.
