Elizabeth Esty on Energy & Oil
Promote clean energy technology: We need to be careful not to have the government pick which technologies will be successful, but instead structure incentives that will allow private investment and the market to move us rapidly to a more energy-efficient and clean-energy future. Getting the incentives right is a triple win--greater security for our country by disentangling us from unsavory regimes around the world, the environmental benefit of cleaner air and water, and the economic benefit of developing products that we can sell to other countries.
