Rep. Thielen on the Environment

The environment is what we leave for our children. How we treat it, what we take from it, what we leave – that is our legacy to our children.When we destroy the environment, that destruction is then passed on to our children, and their children, and their children. I think living in Hawaii makes this even more clear. We have been given such a beautiful land by those that came before us. And when we destroy the land in places, it creates such an ugly scar. But the problem, and the required solutions, are worldwide. We have the solutions available to us: Clean, renewable energy, tapping our nation's abundance of wind, solar, and ocean resources. I believe in American ingenuity. We can change American's energy policy and create a cleaner environment and a safer world.
