Ben Jealous on Environment
Protecting our planet is not just a moral imperative
Climate Change: Consider climate change a serious threat? Limit or tax production of greenhouse gasses?
Hogan: Considers a threat. More mixed on regulations. Vetoed increasing required percentage of renewables for utilities to buy, saying costs too
Jealous: Yes. "Protecting our planet is not just a moral imperative, it is an economic opportunity that Maryland can take to propel our state forward." Climate Justice Program was first program launched when NAACP president.

Protecting environment will give back economic opportunities
As a life-long environmentalist, I know that protecting our planet is not just a moral imperative, it is an economic opportunity that Maryland can take to propel our state forward. Protecting our environment is as much a
question of doing the right thing by ourselves as it is doing right by our kids. I want my children to be able to swim in the Bay for decades and grow up in a state on the cutting edge of the 21st century.
