3: What kind of energy sources will this reliable, zero-emission energy system use?
4: How much will your plan cost over the next ten years? Where will that money come from?
5: What will you do about transportation, building heating, industrial energy, and agriculture?
6: How will you ensure a just transition for displaced workers and frontline communities?
7: How will you reduce per capita energy demand?
8: What is your position on carbon pricing?
9: What is your position on negative emissions?
10: How will you help communities respond to the challenges of climate change that cannot be avoided?
