Once Again, Palin Goes To Bat For Big Oil
On January 24, 2010, Palin took to her Facebook page, once again, to go to bat for big oil companies.
In a post titled "Where's the oil in our national energy policy?" Palin urged the Obama administration to allow Big Oil to "ramp up" drilling inside America's borders. Palin's "plan" naively relies on 19th century energy sources to solve America's 21st century challenges.
While petroleum will, no doubt, play a role in America's energy portfolio for some time to come, Palin's solitary focus on oil to solve America's energy problems ignores the outstanding economic opportunities presented by clean energy.
A future in clean energy will break our dependence on oil from the Middle East, foster an economic boom, and supply the country with clean, abundant, and affordable American energy.
