Vote Climate U.S. PAC endorses Jeanne Shaheen (D) U.S. Senator in New Hampshire. This race is being called a dead heat, ironic given the issue. A recent New England College polls gives Shaheen a slight edge of 47.1% of likely voters over her carpet bagger opponent with 46.6%, who flip flops like a fish out of water, on the climate issue. Senator Shaheen’s website says, “It is now time for Congress and the President to follow New Hampshire’s lead and come together and enact a federal, mandatory greenhouse gas program to cut carbon pollution by 80 percent by 2050.”

Climate Hawks Vote Scorecard:

“Jeanne Shaheen, New Hampshire Senator, has earned a very high score on our scorecard, and thus our endorsement… Shaheen is being challenged by a joke of a Republican who’s flip-flopped as much on climate science as his residency. However, Climate Hawks Vote doesn’t endorse mediocre Democrats who’ll put the climate crisis on the back burner just because they’re fighting bad Republicans. Rather, we selectively endorse only those who demonstrate leadership. Here, Jeanne Shaheen understands the moral imperative of the climate crisis. She’s working with a Republican, Rob Portman (R-OH), to pass a solid bill. She’s earned our endorsement, and she deserves another term in the Senate.”

Jeanne Shaheen News: “We Have a Moral Obligation to Address Climate Change.”

“Scott Brown is wrong. Climate change is very real and here in New Hampshire we are already seeing consequences. In order to protect the people and environment in New Hampshire, we’ve got to take action now to reduce pollution, reduce our reliance on foreign oil, and encourage clean energy investments that create jobs and lower energy costs. It’s disappointing that Scott Brown is ignoring science in order to appease the Big Oil special interests who fund his campaigns.”

Jeanne Shaheen’s Campaign Website:

Carbon Pollution

“The verdict on climate change is in. According to the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), a group of 3,000 scientists from over 130 countries who have studied climate change for over twenty years, global emissions must be stabilized by midcentury in order to avoid the most catastrophic and irreversible consequences of climate change. Senator Shaheen is committed to enacting policies that will reduce carbon pollution by 80 percent by 2050…

…New Hampshire is already a leader in confronting climate change. Along with 10 other Northeast and Mid-Atlantic states, New Hampshire helped to form the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI), the first mandatory, market-based effort in the United States to reduce carbon pollution. It is now time for Congress and the President to follow New Hampshire’s lead and come together and enact a federal, mandatory greenhouse gas program to cut carbon pollution by 80 percent by 2050.”

Alternative Energy

“Shaheen has advocated for national energy policies that place a greater emphasis on clean, alternative energy technologies. Clean energy technologies—such as wind, solar, and [renewable] biomass—have enormous potential benefits for New Hampshire’s economy, and can help us break our addiction to fossil fuels and put us on a path towards a clean, sustainable energy future.”
