From 2007 until 2010, Chesapeake Energy and its employees donated $26 million to the Sierra Club for the purpose of conducting an anti-coal campaign.
Then the Sierra Club decided natural gas is bad, and rejected Chesapeake’s nasty gas money.
Ultimately, the only safe, smart, and responsible way to address our nation’s energy needs is to look beyond coal, oil, and gas, and focus on clean, efficient energy sources such as wind, solar, and geothermal. It’s clear to countries around the world that the most successful 21st-century economies will be based on using energy that is safe, secure, and sustainable. Let’s get to work building that economy right here at home.
The Sierra Club is delusional if it thinks that wind, solar and geothermal, currently about 3% of energy supply, can ever be the foundation of supply. “Safe, secure and sustainable” are words I associate with gas, for at least the next 100 years.
