Scott McAdams on Energy & Oil

 


Unequivocally in support of offshore drilling

On the issue of offshore drilling, McAdams said he unequivocally was in support of it, and that it is in fact the most environmentally conscientious choice due to the high drilling operations standards in the US, as opposed to other places in the world where the country turns to for oil.

McAdams added that as a candidate he had drafted a letter to Secretary of Interior Ken Salazar asking him to lift the moratorium on offshore drilling, noting that the jobs are vitally important to state residents.

When the topic turned to regional hydroelectric projects, McAdams said the most important goal was to aid local communities in getting affordable energy, and that he would fight for federal funding.

Miller agreed that energy projects needed to move forward, but that federal regulatory burdens would make projects less likely to happen.

Develop resources using highest environmental standards

As a former deckhand in Alaska's commercial fishing sector, I will fight to ensure that Alaska's natural resources remain the green choice in a global marketplace. As years of wrong-headed policy has shipped too many American jobs overseas, it is important to remember that the natural resources that fuel foreign produced goods and services are often extracted under the worst environmental conditions. While American's have stood to protect our environment nationally, we have not decreased our demand on the environment globally. As your next US Senator, I will work to ensure that Alaska's natural resources are developed using the highest environmental standards in the world and are promoted as the green choice in the American marketplace while creating new jobs for Alaskans.
