Ruben Gallego on Energy & Oil
In the House, I will support cap and trade legislation as well as a carbon tax to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. I will also support expanded investments in clean and renewable technology, such as solar and wind power.
I know some in the business community will criticize this approach. But until we make it cheaper for businesses to reduce their carbon emissions than continue to pollute the environment, we won't be able to make the dramatic changes needed. For this reason, I am against building the Keystone XL pipeline.
