If America is to become and be energy independent, we keep our oil. OR are the oil companies changing policies for profits? Several countries are NOT willing to sign on to the carbon tax, clean energy or else, program. Climate change? Seeing as how our planet Earth has listed some 18 degrees, how is it that some coal fired generation plants did this? Further, no one cared about the industry wide impacts, jobs lost, and all that. So, I guess our legislature doesn’t care about people? Remember, the Indians lost sacred land to a ‘foreign’ mining company. Think of eminent domain taking any land someone else wants, maybe yours.
