Environment/Environmental Justice

Ecology, Environment, Energy y Environmental Justice

As a Scientist, an Environmentalist and a Humanist, I am committed to Environmental Justice. Each of us has a shared interest in preserving y protecting y sustaining this planet which sustains each of us. We need clean air. We deserve clean air. We need clean water. We deserve clean water. Each of us has a shared responsibility to ensure every community - regardless of ethnic, cultural or economic makeup - to address disparate impact of our industrial society on minority y other marginalized communities and to ensure access to these basic necessities (clean water, clean air). 

Even though the current Presidential Administration has denounced climate change and pulled America from the Paris Climate Agreement, we must remain proactive in taking action to protect people and the planet, ensure clean water y clean air for everyone, protect natural areas, y provide a safe ecological environment and clean energy future for all.

Environment

In that vein, we need to actively protest the building of the Keystone Pipeline XL, fracking activity of any type, as well as promote a halt to Drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. We must urge legislators to pass legislation on renewable electricity generation y decrease our reliance on nuclear power, while still working towards more environmentally-sound transportation alternatives to reduce driving, highway congestion y pollution. Agriculture & Food Safety In the manner of Food Safety, we must continue to ensure farmers and other food producers are being held accountable, including safe working conditions for workers, accurate food labeling, humane treatment of animals, food safety guidelines, phase out of pesticides, and promotion of urban gardens. Accountability We also need proactive legislation to support accountability for energy storage systems, incentives for affordable solar systems, reduction of fossil fuel emissions, protection of water sources from contamination, reduction of California's dependence on natural gas y replacing with renewable energy, reduction of plastic pollution, y sustainable conservation efforts of natural resources y public lands.
