We need to free the United States from its reliance on the dirty fuels of the nineteenth century and achieve American energy independence by investing in the clean energy technologies of the twenty-first century.

I will work to help Washington State continue to be a leader in clean energy technologies. We can build products that will protect the air we breathe and the water we drink while creating good jobs right here.

Washington already has companies that have been at the forefront of clean energy technologies - including Boeing, which 20 years ago built the biggest wind turbine in the world.

We can lead on solar, wind, geothermal, and other cutting edge technologies, which will be good for both our environment and our economy.
