State of Tennessee Archives: on Energy & Oil


Bob Tuke: Dependence on foreign oil hurts security & climate

Our nation is facing an energy crisis. Soaring gas and diesel prices are forcing law enforcement to cut back on patrols and choking productivity for our farmers and freight transportation workers. And as our nation grows increasingly dependent on foreign oil from nations that are enemies of America, our citizens are forced to fund both sides of the war on terror while filling our atmosphere with climate change pollution.
