In many ways the left has successfully painted Republicans as “anti environment.” Nothing can be further from the truth. Republicans like to breathe clean air, drink clean water and enjoy the beauty of nature just as everyone else does. The idea that says the opposite is nothing more than fear mongering intended to gain more votes for the other side.
As Long Islanders we have the priviledge of living near some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Our incredible aquatic and avian life is second to none and I will work hard to bolster laws that keep Long Island and New York State safe, healthy and beautiful.
What I will not do is adopt insane regulations based on junk science that puts our economy at risk. As a person who owns both solar panels on my house and a hybrid car I am no stranger to the benefits of using renewable energy. That’s my choice but if someone else chooses to do things differently that should be theirs. I will not impose on anyone the use of electric vehicles (even though I personally want one) or other “green” energy source if a person doesn’t want them. I believe the free market should drive the user from fossil fuels to green energy if it can.
