Gail Lightfoot on Energy & Oil

2000 Libertarian Challenger for Senate (CA)


Let the market create and sell other energy resources

Q: Do you support or oppose replacing coal & oil with alternatives?

A: MAYBE. Let the market work it wonders to create and sell other energy resources. Americans are risk takers. They will move into new products as they are introduced and become affordable. It would be good to replace coal and oil as the industry develops to provide them; I oppose mandates.

Opposes spending resources to stop Global Warming

To think we few humans can stop the earth’s evolution is extremely vain. We must concentrate on solving problems we have some control over. We cannot regulate the earth’s temperature like we do our houses.

Liberty Candidate: tax incentives for US-based alternatives.

Lightfoot signed 2010 Congressional endorsement list

A Liberty Candidate will Defend the Great American Principles of Free Markets and Constitutional Government, [such as the views of] Peter Schiff, Senate 2010 candidate from Connecticut, on the Economy: "Strong fiscally conservative principles and beliefs that our economic recovery should be left to the free market through businesses and individuals--not the federal government."

And [such as the views of] Michael McPadden, Congress 2010 candidate from Virginia, on Energy: "I favor tax incentives for alternative energy, but I oppose subsidies, which has the effect of allowing the government to choose winners and losers. I favor tax incentives for research into finding cheaper liquefaction and gasification processes for coal. The private businesses that would be involved in the exploration and development of these American energy sources would also be creating real, high paying, permanent jobs for real Americans in real congressional districts."
