Schwartz Says Oil Spill Shows Need For Alternative Fuels

wnpv_politicsCongresswoman Allyson Schwartz, who represents part of Montgomery County, says the Gulf of Mexico oil spill happened because oil companies are drilling in more and more dangerous places that they don’t know how to get out of if something goes wrong. She says they do it because we depend too heavily on oil, and she hopes the spill prompts congress to do something about that dependence.

“Really create the incentives to make sure that we have renewable and alternative fuels and more energy efficiency.  All of our appliances, our buildings, our automobiles, ought to be more energy efficient so we’re using less fuel.  That would be a good thing.  We have some of those technologies to do it, and we ought to encourage that through tax provisions.”

Schwartz says the worst accidental oil spill in history has been harmful not only to the environment, but also oil industry workers and the economies of the Gulf States.  She says we will continue using oil for a very long time, but a two or three percent reduction will help, and we can pay for alternative fuels by moving part of the oil industry subsidies to their producers.
