The United States develops more coal, oil, and natural gas than anyone else in the world. America has enough energy to meet the needs of our country, but our current energy and environmental policy discourages energy exploration in the United States rather than encourages energy independence.
Oklahoma can teach the nation that energy development means good jobs and a bright future. Wind, geothermal, solar, and hydroelectric all show great promise for the distant future, but right now all of them combined can provide only a tiny fraction of our energy needs. We must explore, develop and transport all forms of American energy in a safe and efficient way for all Americans.
We do energy exploration cleaner and we do it better than anyone else in the world. Every energy job benefits our economy and our security; it is time to get America working again.
