Charlie Summers on Energy & Oil

 


Off-shore exploration for oil, plus nuclear and coal

Supports domestic and off-shore exploration and development of oil, nuclear and coal. Favors greater efficiency standards, as well as alternative energy sources, but doesn't believe that's enough to meet future needs. Quote: "Even if we were to go to complete green energy tomorrow, that wouldn't do anything to bring the cost of energy down and help someone get back and forth to work."

High gas and oil prices threaten our economy

The strength of the American dollar continues to wane. Gas and oil prices also threaten our economy and with it our families, yet Washington lacks the will and the fortitude to reduce our dependency on foreign energy sources by promoting and allowing the exploration and development of oil and natural gas here on American soil.
