The United States must transform its energy system away from fossil fuels such as oil and coal, and move towards energy-efficient, sustainable, clean, and renewable energy solutions such as wind, solar, and geothermal. Sustainable, green sources of energy will create hundreds of thousands of jobs as well. While steps have been made, to call them half measures would be incredibly generous. Solar energy, particularly, has the ability to create and sustain hundreds of thousands of jobs nationwide. This will be a fundamental part of our platform as we see new advances in renewable energy technology and availability.
