Zak Ringelstein: Believes in climate change and protecting our environment

We believe the future of our planet depends on us significantly curbing carbon dioxide˙emissions and we don't think we are doing nearly enough. The effects of climate change are real and will continue to take a devastating toll on Maine, the United States, and our planet, including: natural disasters; rising waters; shrinking and moving fish populations, wildfires; spread of disease; water scarcity; loss of wildlife; and agricultural struggles.˙

Angus King: Promote Smart Growth via tax breaks

The Smart Growth initiatives include promoting investments in our downtowns and service center communities, and helping communities restore traditional neighborhoods. It also includes preserving our open rural spaces and promoting agriculture by reducing penalties on farmland under the Farm and Open Space Tax Act, eliminating the sales tax on electricity use in agriculture and aquaculture, and strengthening our Right to Farm law. I strongly support this package, and will work hard to implement it.
