Newt Gingrich - on U.S. Energy Policy

The U.S. continues to rely on foreign oil for a large amount of our energy needs, placing U.S. National Security at risk, especially when oil export countries and shipment routes are under threat of radical governments rising to power in Algeria, Tunisia, Egypt, Libya, Jordan and Yemen. And not to mention the constant threat of a nuclear Iran.

We continue to sit still while we should be developing a greater nuclear energy capability; we should be drilling for more oil and more natural gas; We should not only developing more clean coal sources but uses for coal as an energy as well; and we should be developing massive solar and wind energy capabilities.

Watch Newt's speech at the 2011 CPAC convention calling for an American energy plan and a new Environmental Solutions Agency to replace the old EPA. Be patient, it takes him awhile to get through other issues before he talks about energy policy.
