Michael Baumgartner on Energy & Oil

 


One-cent gas tax to pay for veterans' services

Baumgartner touted one of his proposals: a 1-cent, temporary tax on gasoline to help pay for veterans services. Cantwell rejected Baumgartner's gas tax idea. "I don't support taxing transportation for something other than transportation," she said.

Climate change is happening but unclear if manmade

On climate change, Baumgartner said "it is clear" that it is happening but it was unclear whether it was caused by mankind. Still, he said steps must be taken to deal with rising carbon emissions.

Cantwell said rising temperatures could affect energy prices in Washington state. "I want us to diversify off fossil fuels," she said. "We need a process to protect consumers of the future." She said she's confident a green energy economy can help create jobs.

Use America's abundant and diverse energy supplies

America's overdependence on foreign oil hurts our economy and endangers our troops. It distorts our foreign policy and forces us to do business with some of the world's worst tyrants. An America with abundant and diverse energy supplies will both make the whole world more secure and help good jobs here at home.
