NH Senate Race: Candidates Weigh in on Climate Change, Energy

Posted August 15, 2014 at 3:18pm

The Concord (NH) Monitor reports that “the three Republican candidates seeking to unseat U.S. Sen. Jeanne Shaheen, a Democrat, outlined divergent views on energy policy and climate change in a series of recent interviews with the Monitor.”  

“Jim Rubens said he believes global warming is happening largely as a result of human activity. ‘I understand there’s a problem,’ he said in the interview.”  

“Scott Brown, who didn’t identify the cause of climate change – whether man made or natural, said ‘obviously the climate is changing all the time. . . . The bottom line is we have to find a way to make sure we protect our environment.’”  

“Bob Smith said he doesn’t support the concept that man is causing global warming. ‘The issue of warming is one thing, that it is caused by fossil fuels is another,’ he said. ‘I don’t think the evidence supports it.’”
