State of South Carolina Archives: on Energy & Oil


Thomas Ravenel: Don't divert resources for folly of global warming

I support the vigorous defense and national security of the United States. The Obama administration is decimating critical aspects of our military while diverting resources vital to national security for research on global warming and other political follies. With a smarter approach to national security, it is possible to reduce the Defense budget. We are currently spending money on many of the wrong things.

Brad Hutto: Invest in alternative forms of energy like solar, wind & gas

Brad will continue to lead efforts to invest in alternative forms of energy like solar, wind and gas. We can't continue to rely on foreign countries to supply our energy.
