Sam Clovis on Energy & Oil

 


Obama's "Climate Resilience Fund" just redistributes wealth

President Obama is set to announce a new initiative called a "Climate Resilience Fund," estimated to cost American taxpayers $1 billion. "It seems the President is a little late in realizing that climate resilience ought to be a topic of interest for his administration. Communities across America struggle each day to build resilience. How cynical of the President to use 'Climate Change' as the impetus to redistribute more wealth," said Sam Clovis, conservative candidate for the US Senate.

"Serious research and hard work have gone into building resilience in communities around the country," continued Clovis. "The President's plan is nothing more than a grandstand play to take attention away from his failed administration. Of course, one has come to expect such deception and diversion from this administration. It is hard to believe that so many in whom we have entrusted our governance could be so truthfully challenged."

All energy sources must be developed within market viability

Q: Do you support or oppose the statement, "Prioritize green energy"?

A: All energy sources must be developed within the market structure. If an energy source is viable in the market, it will survive. Otherwise, we need to ensure energy independence for America.

Exploit every form of energy, underground and above ground

There is no reason the United States should not be energy independent in 10 years. The effects on our economy of gaining energy independence would be immediate and long-lasting. The trade balance would move from the negative side of the ledger to the positive side. Our current reliance on oil from countries that are hostile to the US would be eliminated. World geopolitics would be significantly more stable and Americans would have to worry a great deal less about having to police the world.

Energy independence includes expanding and exploiting every form of energy from that found underground to all available sources found above ground, as well. Wind, solar, nuclear and bio-fuels should be further cultivated to balance energy sources and to reduce our reliance on fossil fuels.
