Natural Resources and the Environment
We believe in leaving the world in better condition than we found it.
We Support: • Preservation of biodiversity and wilderness. • Strong environmental programs with provisions for strong enforcement that provide for healthy surrounding for all citizens and for sustainable, long term use of natural resources and a strong role for government in environmental protection. • Living and working conditions free from significant exposure to poisons and radioactivity in air, water and soil. • Responsibility of individuals, businesses and government to notify others of possible environmental hazards, to clean up those they have created, and to compensate others for any resulting damages. • Recognize, protect and conserve clean water as a shared resource held in public trust for the health, safety and benefit of the public. We Oppose: • Disposal of hazardous wastes below ground. • Nuclear power, as it is not a viable energy source
