Bernard DeCastro on Energy & Oil

 


New sources of nuclear power, domestic gas and oil

I BELIEVE in a comprehensive energy policy to include the use and development of new sources of nuclear power, domestic gas and oil, and renewables etc. Like so much of our slipshod science based legislation concerning climate, energy and the like, the destruction of our own national refinery industry has caused America to become a nation dependent upon even our enemies to support our energy needs.

It's not enough that the very science behind this Global Warming farce has been discovered to be doctored; our liberal leaders must go forward with the real agenda of leveling Americans to the living standards of third world countries.
