Woody Myers on Energy & Oil



State is a big polluter, that needs to change

We must reduce the effects of climate change on our residents and businesses. As a manufacturing-rich state, we use a lot of energy--most of it supplied by fossil fuels. Our state has a reputation as a big polluter and that needs to change. We cannot continue to destroy our environment or prop up dying industries because we're afraid of change. We can protect our environment by transitioning our workforce away from fossil fuels to good-paying jobs in renewable and sustainable energy sources.

Indiana must shift to renewable energy to meet our needs

Indiana must become more energy efficient and shift to more renewable energy to meet our electricity needs and to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. As Governor, I'll update Indiana's renewable energy standards and set a new clean energy goal to renew our commitment to a cleaner future. I'll inventory our greenhouse gas emissions and develop realistic reduction targets just as 22 other states have done.

AdWatch: End tax cuts for Big Oil; invest in clean energy

Congressman Andre Carson is asking the president to stop buying oil to fill the strategic petroleum reserve which he says is already filled to 96 percent capacity.

Another candidate in the 7th district is already making the point on gas prices. Dr. Woody Myers has a commercial running stating his position: "In Congress I'll get rid of the George Bush tax cuts for the big oil and gas companies and use the money to invest in clear energy and fuel efficient cars."
