Climate - John Hickenlooper for U.S. SenateSkip to main content Enable accessibility for visually impaired Open the accessibility menu Skip to content CHIP IN $10 TO SUPPORT JOHN HICKENLOOPER >> CHIP IN $10 TO SUPPORT JOHN HICKENLOOPER >> Home Meet John Español Facebook-f Twitter Instagram Spotify Donate Now Donate Now Climate change is the defining challenge of our time, and our state is on the front lines of this crisis, with shorter winters, catastrophic floods and wildfires, and continued air pollution. While Colorado is playing a leadership role in the face of the Trump Administration’s destructive attacks on our environment, we must do more. Our planet’s health, economic well-being, and national security are all at risk. It is imperative that we address the climate challenges we face with a fierce sense of urgency — human lives and livelihoods are at stake. As a former geologist, I have based my plan on the best available science of today. First and foremost, we are calling for a transition to a 100% renewable energy economy with net-zero emissions by 2050, with an interim goal of a 43% reduction below 2005 levels in greenhouse gas emissions by 2030 — exactly where many of the world’s leading scientists tell us we need to go. From day one as senator, I will fight to rejoin the Paris Climate Accord, enforce stricter standards on methane pollution and other harmful emissions, dramatically accelerate development of wind and solar energy, and reverse President Trump and Senator Gardner’s retrogressive and reckless policies. We need a bold, science-based approach to climate change that includes: A job-creating clean energy plan for America. We support an ambitious effort to move the United States to a clean energy future of net-zero emissions no later than 2050. In the Senate, I will fight to: Make large-scale investment in government-funded climate technology research, development, and demonstration (RD&D) to accelerate innovation, including investing in carbon capture, utilization, and storage technology; continued improvements in the development of renewable energy sources such as wind and solar; and in energy-storage technologies. Reinvent America’s transportation system, including electric-vehicle charging infrastructure and making America’s electric grid more intelligent, reliable, secure, efficient, and resilient. I support raising fuel economy standards with the goal of moving to a 100% electric vehicle fleet. We also support investing in improving the energy efficiency of buildings across the country by focusing on revising building standards and providing support to local governments and the private sector to meet the new standards. Develop our workforce with laser-like focus on training young people and people transitioning out of the fossil fuel industry into green jobs. We should bring together the business community, labor unions, and educational institutions to create apprenticeships and skills training programs that create pathways to good-paying, stable jobs and careers. Create a new Climate Corps Program, challenging young people to pursue careers that help combat global climate change. It would include a new set of scholarship and loan forgiveness programs to encourage a new generation of renewable-energy experts, carbon-capture specialists, energy-storage scientists, and entrepreneurs who can help to address climate change and make America a global leader in climate technology. Implement a carbon dividend plan, which experts agree is one critical component of the necessary market incentives to quickly and cost-effectively lower carbon emissions, while also promoting U.S. economic growth. Revenue generated from a price on carbon would be returned directly to American taxpayers as a dividend, more than offsetting any potential increase in energy costs. Ensure equity as we tackle climate change so that the vulnerable communities hardest hit by poor air quality, polluted water, toxic pollution, drought, rising sea levels, wildfires, and floods have a seat at the table in developing equitable climate strategies. Global leadership toward even bolder climate change goals. This is a global challenge — the U.S. accounts for 15% of worldwide greenhouse gas emissions — and the only way to combat climate change is with immediate and sustained international cooperation and ambitious American leadership. We need to be going further than the Paris Climate Agreement goals and creating new linkages between global climate change goals and America’s foreign and trade policies. We must: Rejoin the Paris Climate Agreement and make updates to the agreement that inspire and embolden the global community to take decisive action. We need a commitment to create climate financing for developing countries, a key commitment under the Paris Agreement and a direct contrast with the misguided policies of the Trump Administration, which reneged on American commitments to the world’s leading climate finance mobilization arm, the Green Climate Fund, and other key initiatives. Achieving the Paris targets will help a great deal, but we must commit ourselves to more. Even if all countries meet their targets, it will not hold the rise in global temperature to the “well below 2 degrees Celsius” goal set in the Paris Agreement. Ratify the Kigali Amendment, which requires countries to freeze and then phase out dangerous hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs). Require that greenhouse gas emissions goals to combat climate change are set and enforced as part of any new U.S. trade agreement, as part of a new policy of “open and fair trade.” In order to bring the full weight of America’s global leadership to bear on this challenge, I will also condition certain U.S. foreign aid and foreign military assistance on cooperation with climate change efforts by recipient countries. The Colorado Record As Denver’s Mayor and Colorado’s Governor, I brought people together to launch clean-energy projects and enact pioneering climate change legislation. As a small-business owner, I know that being asked to decide between good jobs and a clean environment is a false choice. And, as a trained geologist, I will bring a practical, fact-based understanding of Earth science to the Senate, in the same way that I accomplished the following: Developed First-in-the-Nation Methane Emissions Regulations. I brought industry groups and environmentalists together to make Colorado the first state to limit methane pollution from oil and gas wells. Colorado’s “gold standard” rules were estimated to cut the equivalent of 340,000 cars’ worth of emissions and cut methane leaks by over half. Expanded Transit in Denver. As Mayor of Denver, we brought together suburban mayors to create the region’s first light rail system, the largest such expansion in modern American history. In the end, all 34 metro mayors unanimously supported building 119 miles of new track across the state. Committed Colorado to the Paris Climate Agreement. I committed Colorado to the Paris Climate Agreement after President Trump withdrew, issuing an executive order to cut greenhouse gas emissions by at least 26%, maximize renewable energy use, and increase electric vehicle use. Fought Back Against Trump Emission Standards Rollback and Made Colorado an Electric Vehicle Leader. In 2018, I issued an executive order to adopt low-emission vehicle standards in response to the Trump Administration moving to roll back stricter fuel efficiency and vehicle emission standards. I also released an Electric Vehicle Plan and led a Western states compact to expand and invest in electric vehicle infrastructure. Made Protecting Public Lands a Priority and Grew Colorado’s Outdoor Economy. I opposed privatizing public lands, helped grow Colorado’s outdoor economy that supports 229,000 jobs and generates billions in economic activity by creating an Outdoor Recreation Industry Office, and sided with local stakeholders against allowing oil and gas drilling in nearly 200,000 acres near the Thompson Divide. Oversaw Retirement of Two Coal-Fired Power Plants and Moved Toward Renewable Energy. During our Administration, the Colorado Public Utilities Commission approved Xcel Energy’s Colorado Energy Plan to retire two of its coal-fired power plants and replace their capacity with renewable energy and battery storage. Signed Landmark Rural Renewable Energy Standard Into Law. I signed legislation doubling renewable energy requirements for rural electric cooperatives. Jump-started the Planting of a Million New Trees in and Around Denver. I launched an unprecedented regional initiative to plant a million trees across the Denver region over [DATE REMOVED]. Signed Kyoto Protocols. While I was Mayor, Denver signed the Kyoto Protocols in 2005 to reduce global warming.

Women’s Health & Reproductive Justice - John Hickenlooper for U.S. SenateSkip to main content Enable accessibility for visually impaired Open the accessibility menu Skip to content CHIP IN $10 TO SUPPORT JOHN HICKENLOOPER >> CHIP IN $10 TO SUPPORT JOHN HICKENLOOPER >> Home Meet John Español Facebook-f Twitter Instagram Spotify Donate Now Donate Now Women’s Health & Reproductive Justice Roe v. Wade is threatened more than ever before. Women’s rights are under attack in courtrooms and legislatures across the country. Seventeen states passed restrictive abortion laws in 2019. The Trump administration continues to antagonize providers, both domestically and abroad.  Meanwhile, Republicans in Congress are trying to defund Planned Parenthood at every turn and have confirmed a slate of extreme, anti-choice judges. Politicians in Washington and nationwide are endangering people’s lives so that they can score political points. Senator Gardner has joined in the attacks: He supports putting politicians in charge of women’s health-care decisions, and even supports putting doctors who perform abortions in jail.  The constitutionally protected right to an abortion is one essential component of a comprehensive approach to reproductive health care. We must also guarantee access to affordable and safe contraception, coverage for routine cancer screenings and management of chronic conditions, and access to reliable information about reproductive health that is private, fact-based, and tailored to an individual’s needs.  I am, and have always been, a staunch supporter of reproductive health and justice. As Governor, I oversaw the implementation of the Colorado Family Planning Initiative. This initiative helped over 30,000 young women gain access to long-acting reversible contraceptive (LARC) devices that they may not have been able to afford or access otherwise. In less than a decade, the program reduced unintended pregnancy rates in Colorado by 54% and was estimated to save taxpayers about $70 million. Allowing young women to decide when they are ready to start a family, while also saving millions in tax dollars, is something that would find bipartisan support in the Senate if Senator McConnell were not in control. But gaps in coverage and access still yawn wide, particularly for low-income individuals, members of the LGBTQ community, and people of color. Advocacy for reproductive health means supporting reproductive justice and individuals’ ability to make safe decisions about their sexuality, health, and identity. I support organizations like Planned Parenthood, which provide intersectional care for individuals of all ages, identities, and backgrounds. I am committed to fighting for legislation that expands access to comprehensive reproductive health care for all who need it.

ENDORSEMENT: After Endorsing Gardner in 2014, Pueblo Chieftain Touts Hickenlooper for U.S. Senate - John Hickenlooper for U.S. SenateSkip to main content Enable accessibility for visually impaired Open the accessibility menu Skip to content CHIP IN $10 TO SUPPORT JOHN HICKENLOOPER >> CHIP IN $10 TO SUPPORT JOHN HICKENLOOPER >> Home Meet John Español Facebook-f Twitter Instagram Spotify Donate Now Donate Now OCTOBER 18, 2020 ENDORSEMENT: After Endorsing Gardner in 2014, Pueblo Chieftain Touts Hickenlooper for U.S. Senate “THE REBUILDING OF AMERICA IS GOING TO TAKE LEADERS WHO CAN WORK WITH EACH OTHER, NOT BLINDLY FOLLOW ANY PARTY OR ANY LEADER. FOR THAT BASIC REASON, WE URGE COLORADANS TO VOTE FOR JOHN HICKENLOOPER FOR THE U.S. SENATE” Today, John Hickenlooper earned the endorsement of the Pueblo Chieftain editorial board, his tenth editorial board endorsement in the U.S. Senate race and the fourth editorial board to buck Senator Cory Gardner after endorsing him in 2014.  In their endorsement, the Chieftain notes Gardner’s silence and repeated failure to stand up to President Trump on the disastrous mishandling of COVID-19, decision to separate families at the southern border, mockery of our men and women in uniform, and criticism of vote by mail.  In sharp contrast, the endorsements says Hickenlooper’s “legacy was one of building an incredibly strong economy, improving our highways and supporting a progressive agenda.” Hickenlooper has now received support from editorial boards in every corner of the state: The Denver Post, The Colorado Sentinel, The Grand Junction Daily Sentinel, The Durango Herald, The Greeley Tribune, El Semanario, The Vail Daily, Colorado Springs Indy, and Boulder Weekly. Four of these papers had previously backed Gardner.   Read the Pueblo Chieftain endorsement here or see excerpts below:   Endorsement: Hickenlooper is the choice for US Senate In evaluating the tenure of US Sen. Cory Gardner, there’s no escaping the fact that he has stood by silently as President Donald Trump and his ever-changing cast of supporters have incompetently dealt with the COVID-19 crisis, treated human beings like animals at the southern border, provided legitimacy to repugnant and dangerous racists, and abandoned common decency, creating an atmosphere in which political opponents are called names and diminished — no matter their credentials and contributions to this nation. The US by far has done the worst job among developed nations in dealing with COVID-19 – the numbers prove it, even though the conspiracy kooks don’t believe the numbers – and Gardner has stayed silent. The president slurs the military, calling them losers and suckers. And Gardner has stayed silent. The president has said repeatedly that voting by mail is rampant with voter fraud. There’s no evidence of that, and Gardner knows that mail voting has been successful and without fraud in Colorado, the state he represents. And he has stayed silent. Rather, Gardner has mounted a relentless attack campaign against former Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper, his Democratic challenger, focusing on relatively minor infractions of ethics rules. Endless TV commercials on that topic — we’ll get to that [DATE REMOVED] – are no substitute for telling us what he’ll do if reelected. We do know what he has done. Gardner has voted over and over to kill Obamacare, but with no guarantees that those with pre-existing conditions will maintain care under the nebulous GOP health care plan – whatever that might end up being. And for those of us in Southern Colorado, we haven’t seen much of Gardner until [DATE REMOVED], although he did deliver on significant funding for the Lower Arkansas River Conduit [DATE REMOVED]. Hickenlooper was governor for [DATE REMOVED], and his legacy was one of building an incredibly strong economy, improving our highways and supporting a progressive agenda. Prior to that, he served [DATE REMOVED] as mayor of Denver, and played a major role in the revitalization of Downtown Denver. …  We find Gardner’s support of the Trump administration’s disastrous [DATE REMOVED] in office infinitely more egregious. And if the president is elected for another [DATE REMOVED], we are gravely concerned that Gardner will continue to be one of the many enablers of more chaos that undoubtedly will ensue. The rebuilding of America is going to take leaders who can work with each other, not blindly follow any party or any leader. For that basic reason, we urge Coloradans to vote for John Hickenlooper for the U.S. Senate.

Personas mayores - John Hickenlooper for U.S. SenateSkip to main content Enable accessibility for visually impaired Open the accessibility menu Skip to content VOTANDO EN COLORADO VOTANDO EN COLORADO Indicio Conoce a John English Facebook-f Twitter Instagram Spotify Donar Donar Personas mayores Los habitantes de Colorado creen que todos merecemos una jubilación segura y dignidad en nuestros años dorados. Pero los imprudentes políticos de Washington han puesto nuestra seguridad de jubilación en el tajo para financiar sus donaciones a intereses especiales. El presidente Trump se comprometió a proteger el Seguro Social y Medicare, pero ahora ha propuesto recortar el Seguro Social y Medicare, y él y el Senador Gardner apoyan poner fin a la cobertura de atención médica para personas con afecciones preexistentes. Es hora de renovar nuestra promesa a las generaciones mayores y jóvenes por igual para una jubilación digna porque es la base estable  para un futuro seguro para los mayores en su retiro  en los Estados Unidos. Podemos hacer esto protegiendo el Seguro Social y Medicare, así como reforzando proactivamente estos programas para que sigan siendo solventes en los años venideros. Debemos reducir el costo de los medicamentos recetados, aumentando la transparencia y la responsabilidad de los precios de los medicamentos, permitiendo la importación segura de México y Canadá de medicamentos que salvan vidas. Estas son políticas que ayudarán a reducir los gastos de Medicare y reducir los costos de atención médica en general. Y si el VA (Administración de Veteranos) puede negociar precios de medicamentos recetados más baratos, ¿por qué no puede el sistema de Medicare? Debemos hacer más por todas las familias que pagan mucho más de lo que deberían por los medicamentos que necesitan. Podemos re-imaginar lo que significa ser mayor en los Estados Unidos al hacer que sea más fácil vivir de forma independiente. Al mejorar las opciones de transporte y controlar los costos de vivienda y atención médica, podemos ayudar a más personas a vivir la vida en sus propios términos. Podemos ayudar mejor a los estadounidenses mayores a determinar su elegibilidad y acceso a los beneficios de SNAP (Programa de Asistencia Nutricional Suplementaria), y nos comprometemos nuevamente a luchar contra el abuso de ancianos en todos los niveles de la ley.
