From the numerous articles I've read and from a number of people that are experts in the "Energy" field, claim that there is not an energy shortage. According to these experts, we have huge Oil Reserves in this Country that would more than supply our need for Oil and would reduce or eliminate our reliance on Foreign Oil!

Furthermore, there has been little serious discussion on the building of Nuclear Plants that would produce "clean" energy and woud be the least costly in the long run!The question is.....Who is right??

It is just like the continual debate that man is the primary cause of Global Warming! This has been proved to be a hoax...but yet the people that support this falacious position on G.B. do not want to be confused by facts!! It is obvious it has become a political Issue and this "Cap & Trade" is simply a way to tax individuals and Businesses into oblivion!

I am not against conservation, or clean air, but I think this whole business "Clean Enviroment" has been blown way out of proportion, in my humble opinion!

Regardless of your position on global warming and becoming green, it seems to make sense to be a good steward of the resources available to us and not to pollute our living space and cause health concerns (either for people or animals). Having said that, what a great program that the Chamber of Commerce has come up with. Thank you !
