Protecting our environment and developing sufficient energy infrastructure should be a national priority. To secure America's energy future, our nation must promote new industries that will help develop more efficient and affordable renewable fuel technologies. We also need to do a better job of conserving our energy resources and preserving our environment.
We need a diverse approach that takes advantage of the innovation and ingenuity of American businesses to create new, reliable and cost-effective energy sources. We must safely and responsibly develop our nation's vast supply of domestic natural gas in order to build the foundation for a clean energy future, and move towards energy independence. Investments in the expansion of renewable energy sources, like wind and solar, as well as in the development of new conservation methods can save American families thousands of dollars every year.
Our country cannot remain a force in the global economy if we continue our dependence on foreign oil. I am committed to securing America's energy future and building a clean energy economy that doesn't rely on other countries, contribute to climate change, or pollute our environment.
