Gary Palmer on Energy & Oil

 

 


US has more oil available than used in the last 100 years

Free markets work if we allow them to. Our energy sector alone could create thousands of new jobs overnight if government would lift unnecessary burdens on developers. We have enormous energy resources with trillions of cubic feet of natural gas and enough coal to last for over 400 years. These are resources that could drive economic growth for the next decade that the Obama Administration refuses to use. The US literally has more oil available than the entire world has used in the last 100 years.

Open up our vast energy resources

Question topic: Governments should pay to develop wind and solar energy solutions when these are not economically feasible.

Palmer: Strongly Disagree.

Question topic: Briefly explain political issues of most concern to you.

Palmer: Opening up our vast energy resources because that is the key to jump starting our economy, creating jobs, paying down our debt and our trade deficit. America is an energy superpower with enough energy resources to dominate the world economy for a decade or more.
