Creigh Deeds on Energy & Oil


No cap-and-trade during recession

McDonnell said Virginia needs a governor who would resist congressional encroachment, citing the cap-and-trade proposal to limit greenhouse emissions and "card-check" legislation backed by labor. Deeds said he would oppose cap-and-trade legislation if it would result in higher energy costs during a recession, a position that could trouble environmentalists in his party.

Focus on energy independence and reducing carbon emission

Creigh has a plan to make Virginia a leader in the new energy economy through targeted investments and a commitment to energy-based research.

Creigh's focus is on creating jobs in the new energy economy, establishing energy independence and reducing carbon emission. With a comprehensive approach to energy, targeted investments today, and a commitment to energy research, we can increase our energy independence and move towards a cleaner energy future. Our energy plan also tackles issues surrounding transportation and the built environment by looking at the electrification of transportation, additional mass transportation capacity, and green technologies.

From his experiences at Douthat State Park-where he was a summer ranger in his youth-to his fight to clean up the Kim-Stan Landfill, Creigh has been a leader in preserving the environment.
