Whatever your politics, Chicagoans, it’s important to vote. I just found this environmental questionnaire detailing mayoral candidate’s responses to various environmental issues. All of the candidates voiced strong support for improving energy efficiency in both private and public buildings, buying more renewable energy, and reducing greenhouse gas pollution 25% by 2020. There were some differing opinions on how to reduce emissions from the Fiske and Crawford power plants. For example, while other candidates promised to enforce compliance, Miguel del Valle backed his promise to clean up the plants with the threat of shutting them down if they don’t comply.
