U.S. House Candidates on Issues: Climate Change




Last month, we asked our readers what questions they wanted to hear from candidates running for office ahead of the November general election. Based on the contributions we received, we have developed a five-point questionnaire for candidates running for the United States House seat covering the 3rd Congressional District of Kansas.

We posted candidate responses to one post per day each day this week. Today, we are posting the candidates’ response to the end point:

Climate change continues to be a major concern for readers of the Shawnee Mission Post. What actions should the federal government take now to deal with the effects of climate change over the coming decades? How would you work to get these steps taken?

Amanda Adkins (Republican)

Raising taxes and enforcing more regulations are Washington’s default answers to far too many problems. Heavy new taxes and job-destroying regulations will stifle our best tool for tackling any environmental challenges we might face: free market innovation. I have no doubts that American ingenuity will continue to improve the energy efficiency and resilience of our country in the face of any negative impacts of climate change.

Through the invention and adoption of new cost-effective technologies, our country has already made great strides in the more efficient use of natural resources, cleaning up pollution and reducing greenhouse gas emissions. The federal government can play a role by encouraging the development and adoption of these technologies and by making improvements to key infrastructure to resist the effects of climate change. However, our economy has proven, time and time again, its ability to adapt to new challenges, and it can do so better without stifling government intervention.

Steve Hohe (libertarian)

For over ten years, I followed the discussion of climate change and weighed the science. First, the data: Weather information has been collected in the United States for the past 150 years from the 1850s, when the Smithsonian Institution provided weather instruments to telegraph stations across the country to record and report temperatures by volunteers. Both the instruments and the involvement of volunteers can have a despicable relationship. Also, it has been reported that the temperature figures have been altered or exaggerated.

Second, claims that the inhabitants of the earth would have died in 10 years from a greenhouse effect made 10 years ago have not happened. The melting of the polar cap and the rising waters did not occur. In addition, no polar bear drowned. Farting cows increasing methane levels in the atmosphere. I could go on and on, but it’s just layered! As we move forward in the decades to come, provide me with real data, real science and let’s be logical!

Third, if I am going to pass a climate change law, give me facts, not theories. Why increase the national debt by $ 4 trillion to promote climate change, shutting down industries in the United States first and not the whole world, thus destroying the American economy.

Sharice Davids (outgoing Democrat)

Climate change is one of the most daunting challenges facing our generation, and this change is having real effects on our economy, the water we drink and the air we breathe. We must work together to tackle the climate crisis at all levels of government.

I support thoughtful solutions to our climate crisis that create well-paying jobs, grow our clean energy economy, and leave a cleaner planet for our future generations. One way to do this is to capitalize on renewable energy, which we are in a unique position in Kansas, as our region has one of the highest wind generation in the world. I have also spent my time in Congress working on bipartisan solutions that will protect our public lands, air, water and trails. We recently passed the Great American Outdoors Act, which is the largest land conservation legislation in a generation, and is now law.
