Mitt Romney ready to exploit all U.S. energy reserves; Rick Perry still climate change skeptic
Another top contender, Mitt Romney, took to the pages of USAToday recently to basically say that he'd drill and exploit domestic oil, gas and coal resources to their "fullest extent." He'll also push for nuclear energy to go bigger. Romney wrote that America has lots of energy laying around, but, "thanks to environmental extremism, has chosen to live like an energy-poor country. That has to end."
Somehow, we find this all less inspiring that candidate Obama's call during his presidential run to put a million plug-in vehicles on the road by 2015. That target might not be met (but it still maybe could), but it's a better future than drill, baby, drill. Nonetheless, the Guardian warns us that "The world needs to prepare for a climate sceptic defeating Obama."
