Donald Trump, Dr. Ben Carson, and Carly Fiorina
The three leading Republican candidates all take a separate stance in regards to climate change. Donald Trump doesn’t believe that global warming exists, rather he believes in a fluctuation of the weather. Trump thinks that we have much bigger problems and should not focus on climate change. Dr. Carson believes that we have an obligation to protect the environment, but argues that climate change should stay out of politics. He believes that it is distracting and irrelevant. Carly Fiorina believes that any attempt to stop global warming is futile and pointless if the United States is acting alone.
Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton
Bernie Sanders believes that global warming is an international crisis that needs to be solved. He wishes to tax companies for their carbon emissions and use that income to fund renewable resources. Hillary Clinton also wishes to move toward more efficient energy sources and conservation. She advocates removing American dependence on natural resources that are obtained from foreign countries in conflict.
