Could there be a way to merge the two seemingly competing issues of oil drilling in Alaska and funding more research on renewable energy? Well a new bill offered by Congressman Devin Nunes proposes to do just that. Comments Congressman Nunes: “What we’re looking at is basically taking the money generated by ANWR and using it to fund our renenwable energy research in this country. Using it for ethanol, clean coal technologies, solar technologies – taking all the revenue and dedicating it because oil is a depletable resource, a depletable asset in our country. But most importantly, why do we need to do this? We need to do it because we need to wean ourselves of foreign oil.”
