Wolf Votes Against Renewable Energy and Efficiency
Yesterday, Frank Wolf demonstrated yet AGAIN that he is no friend of the environment, of energy consumers, or of weaning the United States off its "oil addiction." Once again, Wolf voted against a measure that would have "move[d] the United States toward greater energy independence and security...increase[d] the production of clean renewable fuels...protect[ed] consumers...increase[d] the efficiency of products, buildings, and vehicles...promote[d] research on and deploy[ed] greenhouse gas capture and storage options, and...improve[d] the energy performance of the Federal Government." The resolution passed 215-190, but no thanks to Frank Wolf. Apparently, Wolf's idea of a Christmas present to planet Earth is a lump of coal in the stocking.
