I am a grandmother. I am going to vote for President Obama in November
because I believe he has the best chance at moving the US toward clean
energy production and use, and away from dirty oil and coal.
Romneysupports the oil and coal industries. So far, Obama has approved 29
clean energy projects on federal lands that will power more than 1.5
million homes. What are Romney's plans to reduce use of oil and coal?
None. He plans to increase exploration for gas and oil and to remove
the "burdensome" protections by the EPA while paying no mind
to the people and wildlife whose lives will be disrupted or sacrificed;
nor does he consider the heavy cost of extracting gas and oil from
these places. And finally, he wants to open up pristine wilderness
areas, such as the Alaska National Wildlife Refuge -- to gas and oil
companies for exploration. So much for refuges and pristine
Because of President Obama, by 2025, passenger cars and
trucks will see their fuel mileage nearly double to 54.5 miles per
gallon, saving their owners at least $8000 over the life of a new car,
reducing oil consumption by 2.2 billion barrels and cutting back on 6
billion tons of greenhouse gas emissions. Obama wants to protect from
oil and gas exploration ANWR and other places of incomparable natural
beauty. I want a cleaner America for my granddaughter's future. I
believe only President Obama will deliver on this.
