Climate Change

Climate Change threatens our way of life and in many ways life itself.  I will address climate change directly as the real problem that it is and We The People can be a big part of the solution.  Residential use accounts for 14% of our total power bill as a nation and we can fix that problem one rooftop at a time.  A simple change to the Net-Metering policy will incentivize home owners to invest in renewables like solar and wind power and turn their home into a revenue source as you sell your excess power back to the grid.  I will give the consumer direct access to sell their green power back to the local utility instead of the current credit-based system.  You will not pay each month for the privilege of being connected to the grid.  You will not be hindered by your local Public Utilities Commission and their obvious pandering to to Berkshire Hathaway (parent company of NV Energy).  Your home will be part of a carbon-friendly, energy-producing community.  Subsidies for fossil fuels will end completely.  There is no defensible reason to subsidize a mature and profitable industry.  Our tax dollars are going to Green initiatives and promoting new industries that will employ us and serve us.
