FOR Republicans

Republicans support the care and sustainability of our environment. Their focus is putting that regulating power into the hands of the states instead of the federal government and EPA. They also support all forms of clean energy use- including coal and natural gas. source

FOR Democrats

Democrats support strengthening of the EPA and federal legislation. They also focus on proactive measures to aggressively change how we affect and interact with our environment in ten years or less. source source
