Although he has not specifically stated so, State Senator Potter appears to believe in man-made global warming. He has advocated for "clean energy" such as wind and biodiesel. 


"Not ready" to drill

In response to President Obama's moratorium on oil drilling, State Senator Potter stated that he is "less interested" in a moratorium and more interested in investing in technology.

U.S. Senate candidate Tracy Potter, a Democrat and state senator from Bismarck, said he’s less interested in a moratorium and more interested in investigating technology and regulations.

“Apparently we are not ready to be drilling in 5,000 feet of water because there are safeguards we've overlooked,” Potter said.
