In reply to comment: Another strike against Gary Johnson (see in situ)

you are radically wrong

"Governor Johnson advocates for a free market approach to energy and and a complete removal of government from the energy sector of the economy. This includes ending subsidies to ethanol and other alternative energy markets as well as special incentives to oil, gas and other established forms of energy.

With respect to global warming, Governor Johnson has stated at a campaign event in 2010 that even if man made global-warming was a given, the effects are grossly exaggerated and the amount of money being spent is misguided. In a later 2011 video on Our America Initiative, Governor Johnson stated that he opposed cap-and-trade policies "as they are currently formulated," but did not elaborate on any specific plan.

In other speeches, Governor Johnson has advocated for environmental stewardship more in line with the Libertarian party platform. This includes acknowledging the rights of property owners to be free from pollution from outside sources.

These views were echoed in a March 2012 interview with a Libertarian party leader. He noted in that interview that there was no need to regulate carbon emissions because individual customers were already seeking cleaner energy and the industry was reacting to that desire. He notes that as part of his budget plan, all government bureaucracies, including the EPA would have a 43% reduction in funding. He noted that the EPA would be reduced to fighting true polluters, such as large companies that are too large for private property owners to fight."
