Nevada Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid gave a speech today in the Senate in support of the Gulf of Mexico Energy Security Act (S.3711), which would open more of the Gulf Coast to oil drilling. Reid said the bill wouldn't solve our long-term problems, though, and said, "We need to quickly bring much more fuel efficient cars and trucks to market and really promote energy efficiency and conservation." No kiddin', Harry.
Reid said that Democrats are ready now to "fund an Apollo Project-like effort on energy." Reid said the Bush Administration "still hasn't gotten around to issuing loan guarantees to build new biofuels plants" and that "This country needs a crash course to develop alternative and renewable energy".
