GREEN NEW DEAL

ENERGY POLICIES, NOT OIL SUBSIDIES

GREEN NEW DEAL

America should be the leader in renewable technologies and be leading the world in Green Technology. We need to invest heavily in renewable energy from solar farms to wind farms and in research and development in new clean sources of power including geothermal, bio fuels, etc... It is time to stop welfare to Fossil Fuel companies. We clearly saw in the last few years that once Fossil Fuel companies see a drop in profits they immediately lay off thousands of Americans. In Houston, we have seen the effects of the lowering prices of crude oil, while oil sector jobs are good paying jobs they are contingent upon prices controlled by outside sources like OPEC. If we want true energy independence then we need to invest in renewables that way we control, we build, and we harness. This would put thousands of Americans to work in a field that can not be outsourced and will not be affected by OPEC production. We have to also realize that an investment in green energy should include retraining of oil and gas employees, oil and gas workers deserve the ability to get retrained and their livelihoods secured with new jobs.
