ENERGY SOLUTIONS GROUP MEETS IN WASHINGTON

 

The America Energy Solutions Group met this week in Washington, DC, as part of a National Energy Summit.  Energy experts told the summit that a carbon emissions law or cap and trade law or global warming law would be a tax on the American people.  Co-chairman Congressman John Shimkus said, "The experts confirmed my belief that the economic harm does not justify what I believe to be zero worldwide environmental gain.  The average American household would have to bear the burden with higher costs in energy, gasoline, and manufactured items that could total $3,900.00 per year."
