Rob Hogg on Energy & Oil



Expand solar power, wind energy, ethanol

In the Iowa Legislature, I have worked with citizens and legislators across party lines to pass legislation to assist Iowans with flood recovery and invest in flood protection; to expand solar power, wind energy, ethanol, and biodiesel for jobs and the environment; to invest in soil conservation and clean water; to strengthen education from early childhood to college and job training; to provide health insurance for children and low-income working families.

Address climate change with solutions that work for economy

Getting Congress to address climate change is critical, Hogg said. "This is a very large challenge," he said. "And there's not a single solution. There are thousands of solutions. And the good news is a lot of those solutions work for our economy. They create jobs, help businesses, help farmers, help consumers. So we need to do a whole range of things to address climate change. And we'll talk more about that in detail, but the bottom line is we need to act."

Wind & solar power work; Keystone pipeline unneeded

The good news is that solutions to climate change already are known, State Sen. Rob Hogg says. It's just a matter of getting Congress to act on implementing them: "We have lots of solutions that work," Hogg said. We don't need the Keystone pipeline. We don't need the Bakken pipeline."

What is needed is more solutions like the hybrid and all-electric vehicles Hogg talked about at the kick-off of his "climate solutions" tour at an electric vehicle charging station at Paulson Electric in Cedar Rapids. The tour that will include a stop at Luther College's solar array.

"These solutions work," Hogg said. "Solar power, wind power, other renewable energy sources, electric vehicles, fuel-efficient cars, rail, walkable and bike- ag solutions that build the carbon content of our soil and retain the nutrients on the land, investments in natural resources and investments in infrastructure to safeguard people and property from extreme weather events."

It is time to act on climate change

Hogg would like to see Congress act soon on renewing the wind energy tax credit that was allowed to expire in Dec. 2014, extend the solar energy tax credit before it expires in 2016, support the EPA's clean power plan that sets state thresholds for sustainable energy & support an upcoming UN international agreement on climate change. "It is time to act on climate change," he said. "Millions of Americans are acting to address climate change. We need Congress to join the fight against climate change.
