Marvin Nelson on Energy & Oil

 

 


Increase state research on global warming from $5M to $50M

The Stenehjem campaign said, "Doug Burgum is anti-coal," because Burgum acknowledged there's global warming. That means he's anti-coal? Well, that would mean the president of Hess Corp. is anti-coal and anti-oil, because he admits it, too. Now, I think it's very anti-coal and anti-oil to not admit there's a problem, because we have to solve this. How do you put significant resources toward solving a problem that you can't even admit exists?

I think if you keep denying global warming, you're guaranteeing that in 15 years, we don't have a coal industry. So, here's my plan. We spent $5 million on research this biennium; and we're going to have to ramp that up. In this coming biennium, we are looking at a $50 million to $100 million commitment into research [on carbon sequestration], because we're going to have to tweak whatever there is to make it work on our plants. If we're going to keep that industry, we have to live in the real world, and we have to work to adapt to the situation.
