Joe Biden’s war on oil and gas is killing jobs and destroying economic opportunity in New Mexico. These policies fail to achieve any meaningful reduction in carbon emissions and destroy our community’s ability to provide for our families. Instead, radical progressive policy has been a windfall to foreign oil companies in Russia and the Middle-East. Congress needs to fight back, and stop Joe Biden from sending well- paying New Mexico jobs overseas.
Oil and gas can be part of a comprehensive climate solution. Alexis believes we should take an “all of the above” approach to energy. As we continue to produce oil and clean natural gas in the United States, we should also continue to invest in researching effective long-term energy solutions, including solar, wind, hydro, nuclear, and others, as well in carbon reduction technologies necessary to reduce the current build up of greenhouse gases. The free market creates solutions to climate change, not the Green New Deal.
