Candidate Review - The Environment - Hillary Clinton

Well Clinton also combines both her energy and environmental pages. I approve, but she then comments on how her plan will create five million new jobs.
Hillary has a bold and comprehensive plan to address America's energy and environmental challenges that will establish a green, efficient economy and create as many as five million new jobs.

Centered on a cap and trade system for carbon emissions, stronger energy and auto efficiency standards and a significant increase in green research funding, Hillary's plan will reduce America's reliance on foreign oil and address the looming climate crisis.
This strikes me as a little like pandering. It's no secret that America's labor unions are not as keen on environmental as other members of Clinton's potential coalition. I am also concerned that Clinton may be promising more than she can deliver.

Still there is a lot to like here.
