Howie Hawkins on Energy & Oil

Green Challenger


100% Clean Energy by 2030, rebuild manufacturing

Our program will get the United States to 100% greenhouse gas reductions and clean renewable energy by 2030. Our campaign is demanding an immediate nationwide ban on fracking and all new fossil fuel infrastructure. In order to get to 100% clean energy, we must convert all sectors of production to ecologically sustainable technologies. We will rebuild manufacturing in the United States on the basis of zero-waste clean technologies.

Socialize Big Oil; reinvest in renewables

Socialize Big Oil and Gas: ExxonMobil, BP, Chevron, Shell, Koch Industries, and the rest will never reinvest their fossil fuel earnings in renewables instead of more oil and gas.

100% clean energy means electrified transportation, manufacturing, and heat pumps for buildings. A rapid transition to clean power requires public power for lower costs and effective planning without obstruction by incumbent generators and distributors.

I'm the original Green New Dealer, since 2010

Green Party candidate Howie Hawkins wants to set the record straight. "A lot of people think Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez thought up the Green New Deal," he told me. "But I'm the original Green New Dealer."

Hawkins says he was the first American political candidate to run on the promise of a Green New Deal. During his run for NY governor in 2010, he proposed a plan to fight climate change "with the same urgency, speed, and commitment of resources that our country demonstrated in converting to war production for the mobilization for World War II." To reduce carbon emissions to net zero over ten years, Hawkins's plan would "devote resources to and create jobs in renewable energy, public transit and organic agriculture." And those resources would come from progressive tax reform.

Hawkins thinks the Green New Deal is being unfairly co-opted. But he's happy that it's become mainstream, because "it's our opportunity to explain how the Democratic establishment chopped away the pieces," he said.

More mass transportation, and fuel cell cars

Traffic congestion cannot be dealt with without slowing population growth or long-term planning on organizing our cities better and establishing mass transportation, getting fuel cell going in cars and reducing the size of cars.
