Quote, March 10, 2003

   “[T]he energy bill, H.R. 6 ... was written for big energy companies by big energy companies to benefit big energy companies. It would do little or nothing to increase the reliability of the electricity grid or reduce the consumption of imported oil, and misses the opportunity to add much-needed jobs to the economy. Instead, this collection of subsidies, tax breaks, and loopholes would cost ratepayers and taxpayers billions of dollars, while threatening their air, drinking water, and public lands....This bill invests billions of hard earned tax payer dollars in the dirty, costly energy technologies of the 20th century, while ignoring 21st Century solutions that our international trading partners are vigorously pursuing....The energy bill ... will take us backward. It will make oil and gas development the dominant use of America's western public lands and severely damage our health, our environment, and our pocketbooks. ” [Tom Paine, 11/17/2003]
