    Unless we move aggressively to transform our energy system away from fossil fuel, into energy efficiency, into sustainable energy, the planet that we are going to be leaving our kids is something that we should be ashamed of.

    We want all the sources of energy. We want to dig coal, but we want to clean it when we burn it. We believe in natural gas. We believe in nuclear power … I believe in solar energy, wind energy, efficiency; renewables matter. … Battery technology can unleash an entirely different world. You can have a strong environmental policy at the same time you have strong economic growth.

    I’m the only candidate [who] has a policy about how to bring economic opportunity – using clean renewable energy as the key – into coal country. … Now, we’ve got to move away from coal and all the other fossil fuels. But I don’t want to move away from the people who did the best they could to produce the energy that we relied on.

    We need an all-of-the-above energy approach that embraces the bountiful resources in this land — from oil to natural gas to ethanol. We need to open up abundant and affordable gas and electricity resources . . . We must harness our nation’s energy resources and remove federal impediments to energy exploration, development, and trade.

    I strongly support the coal industry. I believe that if we can collect all the carbon and flash from coal usage in production we would have the building blocks of modern materials never before seen. If we can process the spent carbon to find buckyballs we can grow nano tubes for the new generation of materials. If we could utilize the fly ash in concrete production we could build incredible things
