Urge Congress and FERC to adopt the Trump energy plan!

We are at the crisis point.

Two-thirds of the United States is in an ice box, demonstrating the importance of coal and nuclear energy to provide reliable electricity and heat in times when the system is stressed like this week's blizzard. Congress and the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) need to approve President Trump's energy plan to ensure that reliable and resilient coal and nuclear power remain the critical part of our nation's electricity grid.

For the first time in at least a decade, a new coal mine opened last year in Pennsylvania. Only one new nuclear power plant has come online in the past 20 years. In the meantime, the federal government has waged a war on coal with crushing regulations that is taxing our grid capacity, which has not grown at all in a decade even as residential use was increasing.

Without the Trump energy plan, the economy cannot grow and enough new, good-paying jobs cannot be created without expanding the grid particularly in the industrial sector with coal and nuclear. If America wants to be a manufacturing powerhouse again, we need more power, and expanding the use of coal and nuclear to fuel this expansion just makes sense.

Congress and FERC must approve the Trump energy plan.

Most of our leaders don't understand that the only source of true wealth is in natural resources that come out of the ground. Think about it.

Energy independence is both economically and national security smart. NO other country is sidelining their energy resources to serve "global warming" hysteria.

If you think that you have lessened our carbon foot print on GOD’s green earth you are living in a fantasy world. All that has happened is that our carbon foot print has moved to Mexico, Canada, South America, China, and all of the former Russian block countries. In this you have lowered our economic output and lowered our standard of living. All these countries thank you for selling out your constituents.
