ENERGY INDEPENDENCE

Al Gore Quote

DNC on Energy Independence

Democrats are working to pass comprehensive energy and climate legislation to protect our nation from the serious economic, environmental, and strategic risks that result from our reliance on foreign oil. The BP oil spill is the latest reminder that our current energy policy is simply unsustainable. We can’t afford to stand by as our dependence on foreign oil deepens, and deadly pollutants threaten our air and our water and the lives and livelihoods of our people. And we can’t fall behind as other countries take the lead in creating clean-energy jobs and industries of the future.
