Hillary Clinton on the Environment

Clinton opposes the Keystone XL oil pipeline, calling the project a 'distraction' from the more important work of combating climate change.


HILLARY CLINTON: “I think it is imperative that we look at the Keystone pipeline as what I believe it is: A distraction from the important work we have to do to combat climate change - and, unfortunately, from my perspective, one that interferes with our ability to move forward to deal with all the other issues. Therefore, I oppose it.



We have a lot of work to do. A lot more jobs, from my perspective, on a North American clean energy agenda than you would ever get from just one pipeline crossing the border. So, let's do this because it's the right thing to move beyond it and to make it possible for us to have a much more effective system that will accelerate the use of clean, renewable energy.”


22 September, 2015: Clinton speaks about the environment



Clinton is critical of government subsidies of fossil fuels, and believes that an equal amount should be spent encouraging renewable energy for environmental protection.


PETER MANSBRIDGE: “Prime Minister Harper was arguing last week that no country will take action on climate change if there's an economic detriment to it in taking that action.”

HILLARY CLINTON: “Well, but, look at what we do - and I can only speak for my country, I don't know about your policies. We highly subsidize, still to this day, fossil fuels. All kinds of tax benefits flow to oil companies, and gas companies, and coal companies. And although those are under scrutiny now, they still exist.

Well, if the government's going to subsidize something, and that says nothing about what we do for nuclear power, which cannot be, plants can't be built or run without huge government subsidies, particularly for insurance. So the government's already got a really heavy thumb on the scale. Let's put an equally heavy thumb on the clean energy, renewable side, and I will guarantee you that there is a path forward that will minimize the economic disruption as we make that transition.”
