2008 Elections

Mitt Romney on Environment and Energy


(Romney dropped out of the Republican presidential contest on Feb. 7, 2008, following disappointing results in the Feb. 5 Super Tuesday primary contests.)

Through the development of additional forms of renewable energy sources coupled with the increase in our energy efficiency, America can end its dependency on foreign oil and clean up the environment. He plans to put America on an investment track much larger than the $4 billion that the administration currently has alloted to increase research in the renewable energy market. Outside of national efforts, Romney looks to align America with China and other countries to create a global movement toward energy efficiency and environmental protection.


Romney's Web site: "I believe we have to be developing more energy sources ourselves which would include offshore drilling and drilling in ANWR, nuclear power, bio-diesel, bio-fuel, ethanol, cellulosic ethanol, probably liquified coal, we have enormous supplies of coal." -Mitt Romney
