Today’s energy crisis — with oil and gas prices skyrocketing, electricity costs rising, and the whole economy teetering on the edge of disaster as a result — is artificial. And it’s also avoidable, as is the dangerous national security crisis to which the energy crisis has led. As Newt Gingrich and Vince Haley show in “Drill Here, Drill Now, Pay Less: A Handbook for Slashing Gas Prices and Solving Our Energy Crisis,” America is gifted with enormous reserves of energy — we need not be paying four dollars a gallon for gas and wondering how soon it will be before we’re paying ten dollars a gallon, and we need not continue to be vulnerable to unreliable and potentially hostile countries.
Gingrich and Haley explain that our current energy crisis didn’t have to happen — and how it’s the result of decades of failed government policies, bureaucratic incompetence, and a system of regulation and litigation that have prevented any real development of America’s own energy supplies. They detail how the crisis does far more severe damage to our national security than most analysts realize. Even more importantly, they show how, when it comes to energy resources, America is a sleeping giant — with potentially the largest energy reserves of any country in the world. Although decades of ever-increasing anti- energy regulations have crippled our ability to produce energy, with the right policies America could rival — and even exceed — the world’s biggest energy powerhouses.
Nor is that all. Gingrich and Haley map out a roadmap for affordable, abundant American energy, and even explain how we can produce more American energy and protect the environment at the same time. They situate the energy crisis in the context of the deeper conflict between conservatives and liberals, and above all, they offer a plan of action: “What YOU Can Do to Help Win the Debate for More American Energy Now.”
Newt Gingrich separates myth from fact and issues a stirring call to action:
The current American energy policy is a disaster — and our government isn’t doing anything about it. It’s time for we the people to act. Drill Here, Drill Now, Pay Less is dedicated to giving you the arguments to win the debate for more American energy.
