Mead Treadwell on Energy & Oil
Supports CO2 sequestration technology and hydrogen vehicles
Few can claim Treadwell's experience and understanding of the Arctic, where he has represented Alaska on U.S. Delegations in three circumpolar government groups, and been a director of the Institute of the North.
Treadwell called ocean acidification
one of the "most pressing effects" of climate change, and "one of the toughest things to adapt to." The solutions, he believes, lie in better technology. "I have always supported trying to make our energy cleaner," he said, pointing to potential in
CO2 sequestration technology and use of hydrogen vehicles. "I believe we can and must be a proving ground for some of these new technologies."
Treadwell added, "but you are not going to find me,
as a responsible official from a state known for three things: cold, dark, distance--and where people are already paying too much for energy, trying to raise their energy prices."
