State of Ohio Archives: on Energy & Oil

Josh Mandel: Use responsibly the natural resources we're blessed to have

Mandel said the nation's energy policy should take advantage of natural gas reserves buried under the eastern portion of the state. "The administration--and Congress to a certain extent--fail to see our natural resources as assets," Mandel said. "I believe the oil and gas and other natural resources we're blessed to have should be used in a responsible way."

Eric Deaton: Produce oil from the easy state-side locations

Q: Do you support environmental regulations, or international emissions targets, aimed at reducing the effects of climate change?

A: Neither.

Q: Do you support allowing energy producers to trade carbon credits under a "cap and trade" system?

A: No.

Q: Do you support domestic oil exploration in federally-protected areas?

A: Yes. We should be producing oil from the easy locations so that we are not pushing technology so far that we have accidents we can't recover from like the recent Gulf spill at 5000 feet deep.

Q: Do you support federal funding for the development of alternative energy?

A: Yes. When federal funding helps promote the development of alternative energy technology it should be required to be produced state-side. Only majority owned U.S. Corporations should be able to receive federal research funding and the new technology should be protected from export very stringently.

Q:Do you support the development of nuclear reactors?

A: Yes.
