The Alaska Republican's proposal would boost production and exports of coal as well as oil from conventional sources and non-conventional, extra-dirty ones like tar sands, shale oil and oil shale. This, we are told, can free the United States from dependence on OPEC oil by 2020, the "energy independence" goal that was first vaulted into public discussion 40 years ago.
It is not until page 108 of the 115-page plan that "climate change" finally makes an appearance. And when it does, Murkowski talks about uncertainties and competing theories while complaining that unelected bureaucrats at the Environmental Protection Agency are overstepping their bounds by enforcing rules "with costs that vastly outweigh their potential beneﬁt." Her colleague, Sen. Jim "Global warming is a hoax" Inhofe, must be dancing a jig.
They really don't know. Looks like another tax hoax.
