Words: Clinton supports any effort to combat pollution and full funding of the EPA. She also advocates “green-collar” job training. “I have worked on behalf of children’s health and the environment, I’ve stood for clean air and worked in the administration to deal with problems from asthma to trying to figure out the possible environmental causes and correlations with breast cancer.”
Actions: As First Lady, Clinton lobbied heavily for the reduction of air pollution. She voted AGAINST confirming Gale Norton as Secretary of the Interior (2001), and FOR including gas and oil smokestacks in mercury regulation (2005). The League of Conservation Voters has given her a rating of 89%.
