With a look toward the 2016 elections, the NRDC Action releases Running Clean: Good Policy, Good Politics, which shows that candidates who run clean are more likely to win because they are supported by voters who want a cleaner environment. As part of our 2014 election analysis we bring you Running Clean: Good Policy, Good Politics featuring U.S. Senators Jeanne Shaheen, Gary Peters, and Brian Schatz. These environmental champions outline in their own words their roadmap to success by supporting action on climate change and investments in clean energy. Their path to victory on Election Day, is one all 2016 candidates should embrace.
Clean energy is a win-win issue for candidates: in addition to being good public policy, it’s good politics.
