Rand Knight on Energy & Oil

Democrat Challenger


Biofuels & clean green jobs

My central plan revolves around energy, environment and economy. I will sponsor legislation for biofuels from agricultural waste, the retrofitting of municipal buildings to increase water and electrical efficiency, and the development of renewable energy This newly implemented infrastructure will foster energy independence that puts money back into our economy, providing clean, green jobs. Additionally, we will no longer need to entangle ourselves in the politics of foreign oil.

Tackle energy dependence to reduce terrorist support

We've got to tackle the energy challenge; get off our dependence on foreign oil; and choke off the support we're giving to terrorists in the Middle East. If we invest in clean, renewable energy, we can create jobs & cut energy costs. We're talking about more than the price at the tank but also the price of makeup & plastics. Everything we touch somehow involves the cost of energy. If we tackle these energy problems we will reward ourselves with national security and economic security here in Georgia.

Clean energy means cutting carbon emissions

Clean energy means cutting carbon emissions--which will lead to improvements in general health as we will be polluting the environment far less. These health improvements will save us money on healthcare. Also, cutting carbon emissions will reduce the progression of global climate change, which means fending off an increase in infectious diseases, droughts and natural disasters that already extract enormous costs in our health, our food supply and our job base.
