Paula Jean Swearengin on Energy & Oil

 

 


We must transition from coal, move to clean energy

The very serious question that faces West Virginia today is: What are we going to do when the coal is gone? Paula Jean understands that we must transition from coal. Paula Jean will fight to bring innovative solutions to these age-old problems. We can learn from successes we see in other states. In Ohio, they've grown a clean energy market that's helped create tens of thousands of jobs.

Congress needs to support the Green New Deal

West Virginians have been impacted by pollution for years. The industrial revolution was built on the backs of Appalachians. Our waterways, mountains and health have paid the price. Climate change is impacting us now. Congress needs to take it seriously by supporting the Green New Deal, and the Reclaim Act. I'll fight for federal funds to support states like ours.

Federal investment in the renewable energy sector

Q: What areas of public policy are you personally passionate about?

A: We need federal investment in the renewable energy sector. In 2017, renewable energy jobs grew 12 times faster than the rest the our economy. These products must be built in place and maintained by workers who live right here. These jobs can't be outsourced or moved out of state. West Virginia is the perfect place to start. With the coal industry in decline due to mechanization, mountaintop removal requiring many fewer miners, and the competition of cheaper extraction in the natural gas industry, there is a workforce here ready and able to take on the challenge.

Need to invest in renewable energy now

The cheap renewable energy economy is coming. If we choose to build it now instead of decades from now, we'll create millions of jobs and free up trillions of dollars from energy costs for other projects. This will be a huge boon for American workers and this cheap renewable energy will give American businesses a competitive edge. We have a choice: fall behind the rest of the world or build America's cheap, renewable energy economy right now.
