Ron Saxton thinks that technologies used to produce alternative energy, such as wind and solar are "gimmicks". Register Guard, 8/28/2006.

Saxton in his own words: "To be really blunt with you, I'm not running for governor to deal with global warming,” speaking to a business group, Oregonian, 9/20/2006.

Saxton opposes new clean air emission standards to reduce our dependence on foreigin oil and protect our air. Republican and Democratic governors across the country are pushing these safeguards, but Saxton says we should rely on George Bush. "I don't think the state's the right place to do it," Saxton said of efforts to curb global warming. Salem Statesman-Journal, 10/18/2006

Saxton would significantly expand logging our forests, and opposes Clinton-era safeguards to protect wild roadless forests, threatening the drinking water for hundreds of thousands of Oregonians. OLCV Blog
