2008 Elections

Chris Dodd on Environment and Energy


(Editor's Note: Dodd dropped out of the presidential race for the Democratic nomination, following a poor showing in the Iowa caucuses on Jan. 3, 2007, where he got less than 1 percent of the delegates. See a video of his explanation on his campaign Web site. )


He proposes a 14-point energy plan. He emphasizes the corporate carbon tax that will impose a fine on big business polluters. Fines collected will fund research and development in renewable energy technology. He would not only raise standards for fuel and energy efficient products, but reduce the cost of these products as well.
