Robin Carnahan on Energy & Oil

 


Opportunity for clean, homegrown, affordable energy

Robin believes we must turn our energy challenge into an opportunity to get America running on clean, homegrown, affordable energy, which will help fuel our economy with new jobs and businesses, strengthen our national security, and protect our environment. She is committed to fighting the special interests and the naysayers who want to preserve the status quo, because if America doesn't lead the way toward the clean energy future, someone else will.

Free ourselves from unhealthy dependence on foreign oil

America's dependence on foreign oil is hurting our economy, harming our environment and threatening our national security. The US will be compromised as long as it remains beholden to oil-producing and often anti-democratic regimes. Freeing us from this unhealthy dependence is one of Robin's top priorities. She will work aggressively to increase renewable homegrown energy production and move us toward a new clean energy economy that will create new jobs and strengthen our national security.
