It is a fact that terrorism is directly or indirectly funded by oil purchases from the Middle East. Those that would do us harm are dependent on the proceeds of oil exports. It is a fact that while technologies on renewable sources of energy advance our economy will still be dependent on oil and natural gas. Lets put terrorists out of the energy business and put Americans back to work by keeping the money we spend on energy here at home. Energy independence will put terrorist organizations out of the energy business.
