12 The Julian News November 4, 2015 Questions & Answers About Our Environment Dear Earthtalk: Where do the leading Democratic candidates for president stand on environmental issues? -- Leslie Mazur, Hauppauge, NY President Obama, with his recent push to join the world in reducing greenhouse gas emissions, will be a tough act to follow on the environment. But each of the Democratic candidates has shown a willingness to continue fighting the green fight and working with industry and other nations to rein in emissions and promote sustainable development. Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders stands out in terms of environmental commitment. He has been a vocal defender of the need for an international climate accord, initially championing U.S. participation in 2000's Kyoto Protocol, a climate pact that ultimately failed due to lack of participation by China and the U.S. Since then, he has remained one of the most outspoken advocates for climate action in Congress. His current platform includes instituting a nationwide carbon tax and using the funds to finance the development of renewable sources of energy. He would like to see the country move quickly toward "fossil fuel independence" and is advocating that at least 25 percent of U.S. energy come from renewable sources by 2025. He is against letting the Keystone XL pipeline cross the United States with Canadian tar sands oil. He would like to See the federal government cut gubsidies to large animal "factory farms" and move that money toward stimulating the organic agriculture sector. And he backs efforts to require labeling for any products containing genetically modified organisms (GMOs). Frontrunner Hillary Clinton is no slouch on the environment, either. Like Sanders, she supported U.S. participation in the Kyoto Protocol and has been outspoken about the need to address climate change ever since. She terms the effort to achieve carbon neutrality nationwide as our "modern Apollo moon shot" and would like the federal government to pledge $100 billion annually to mitigate the effects of climate change. She recently came out in opposition to the Keystone XL pipeline, and shares Sanders' desire for achieving 25 percent clean energy nationally by 2025. fully by 2050. For his part, former Rhode Island governor Lincoln Chafee supports increasing federal funds for fighting climate change and is a staunch opponent of drilling in Alaskan wildlife refuges. Historically, he has supported raising mileage standards, increasing public transportation infrastructure, and federally subsidized remediation for brownfields (contaminated lands previously used for industrial purposes). Environmental advocates have their fingers crossed that, regardless of the outcome of Bernie Sanders may not be the frontrunner among Democratic contenders for the White House, but he may just have the most environmental credibility.

Otherwise, Clinton generally supports efforts to conserve sensitive lands and protect endangered species, and has consistently backed efforts to beef up the Clean Air and the Clean Water acts. The remaining candidates for the Democratic nomination also boast strong environmental track records. As Governor of Maryland, Martin O'Malley spearheaded a statewide effort to protect roughly a million acres of land around Chesapeake Bay to bolster waning blue crab and oyster populations. He supports helping the clean energy sector get off the ground to protect the environment and provide jobs, and wants to double the nation's energy efficiency in just 15 years and get the U.S, off of fossil fuels the 2016 elections, the U.S. can maintain the momentum of the Obama administration on climate and related issues.

Ask Pastor Rick In The News "Sister Wives" Clan Uses Same-Sex Ruling In my Case The stars of the reality television show "Sister Wives" used the U.S. Supreme Court's recent same-sex marriage ruling to support their case against Utah's polygamy ban. The filing with the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals by Kody Brown and the four women he considers his wives -- Meri Brown, Janelle Brown, Christine Brown and Robyn Sullivan -- came in response to the Utah Attorney General's appeal of a lower court's ruling in their favor. The August 26th filing referred to the Supreme Court's June ruling legalizing same-sex marriage nationwide, saying that Utah's position against plural families relies on outdated law. "This case is about criminalization of consensual relations and there are 21st century cases rather than 19th century cases," attorney Jonathan Turley said in the 79- page filing. "It is clear that states can no longer use criminal codes to coerce or punish those who choose to live in consensual but unpopular unions."

Will and Loni Schuder Re/Max Associates 619-787-8044 Ask Pastor Rick What is Common Grace? Common grace refers to that grace of God that all men in common enjoy. It is not, as some say, calling anything that God does as merely common. All God's gifts, whether common or special (saving grace) are glorious. In common grace, God pours out His mercy and goodness in many ways. God sends rain on the just and unjust the same [Matthew 5:45]. The just and unjust alike share sunshine, rainbows, the beauty of a rose, a gentle flowing stream, and the beauty of a sunset. One more thing. We live in a world of wickedness, but it is not as wicked as it could be. God in His common grace, whether by governments, laws, law enforcement, balances of power, et. al., restrains much of it.
