Spencer Cox on Energy & Oil



Help Utah lead in sustainable energy development

I encourage you to vote for legislation to help Utah become the nation's leader in sustainable energy development. We can no longer be reliant on foreign countries--some of whom actively seek to do us harm--to be the primary suppliers of our country's clean energy future. Twenty-eight of the world's 35 most critical minerals can be found right here in our state. We can show the country and the world how to responsibly harness the power of our precious natural resources.

Support driverless vehicles, mass transit

Cox added Utah should be at the forefront of technological changes in transportation, such as driverless vehicles and vehicles powered by electricity, and said he wants increases in carpooling and mass transit.

There's very clear evidence of climate change

On climate: "There's very clear evidence of a climate change--that the climate has been changing for a long time," he said, echoing the climate-science talking points of some Republicans. "Certainly, this feels much more like the new norm when it comes to fires." Cox lives near the fast-growing Hilltop Fire in Sanpete County and has been monitoring the blaze all week. Utah is limited in any response, he said, because the climate is "global."
