Get Free of Foreign Oil

By Letter to the Editor

It is time to act on cleaning up our environment and at the same time create thousands of new jobs by joining with the Pickens Plan or the we-can-solve-it people by urging Congress to put forth an initiative to create clean energy.

The technology is there now to get the job done and free us from our dependency on foreign oil. The rest of the world is passing us up in this area, are we the leaders or not? Paying $700 billion to foreign countries for oil is unacceptable. We need to keep that money here where it is needed.
