The Illinois Forward party understands and accepts climate change as a serious threat and supports a planned transition from fossil fuels to renewable energy sources like solar, wind, nuclear, and hydrogen as part of our energy independence plan.  We understand and support the important role biofuels play in this transition. We believe that protecting the environment is crucial for the health and well-being of our communities and future generations. We support policies that promote clean energy, reduce carbon emissions, and protect our natural resources. We support the investment in environmentally friendly and conservation-minded agricultural practices and policy that incentivizes it.
