Our environment is of critical importance to our nation and the world. I believe it is our scientists who should lead the scientific community in research into understanding the true cause and effect relationships our actions have on our world. As climate change scandals have shown, the United States should never allow its policies to be dictated by the United Nations or any other foreign interest. We truly have a chance to lead the world with open and honest research, and I would support legislation that promotes truth in discourse. Such research would be a strategic asset for our nation, and keep us from wastefully investing time and money on agenda-driven junk science.
Furthermore, we must recognize that we, as a People, are good stewards of our environment, and therefore have every right to utilize our natural resources, free from over-bearing, special-interest driven regulation.
