O’Malley To Push White House Energy Plan

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — Gov. Martin O’Malley is helping pitch President Barack Obama’s national energy plan.

Obama outlined his ideas — including increased development of oil and gas leases, along with alternative fuels — earlier this week. He’ll visit a UPS shipping center Friday in Landover, where he’ll check out vehicles from the “clean fleets” of UPS, AT&T, PepsiCo and Verizon and talk to the companies’ employees.

Meanwhile, O’Malley and U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood will promote the president’s proposal Friday afternoon to reporters during a conference call.

O’Malley has offered his own energy agenda, including a call for offshore wind energy development and establishing electric car charging stations throughout the state.

    Of course he’s pushing for it; he’s in lock-step with the President. What I would like to know is what are the alternative fuels going to be that can sustain us as well as what we are currently using. I am all for alternative fuels as long as they are as economical, reliable, clean and available to all. Wind = FAIL Natural gas is promising however. Nuclear for the most part is economical and safe. Outside of those, what are our alternatives? What are we replacing: oil, coal??

THE GAP BETWEEN THE UPPER CLASS AND THE MIDDLE CLASS IS GETTING WIDER AND WIDER THANKS TO OBAMA’S POLICIES!!!! HE’S TAKING MORE FREEDOMS AWAY FROM THE MIDDLE WHILE ENSURING THAT THOSE WITH MONEY DON’T HAVE TO MAKE ANY SACRIFICES!!!!

    Being Green always sounds good in theory, but I can’t afford the extra cost. I’m hanging on by a thread as it is!
