June 1, 2008

On CSPAN 5/21/2008: WASHINGTON, DC: 2 hr. 59 min.: CSPAN3 you will find Senate Judiciary Cmte. hearing on Rising Crude Oil Prices. The oil industry blames the rising price of consumer gasoline on increases in the cost of crude oil. Executives from BP America, Shell Oil Co., Chevron Corp., ConocPhilips Co., and Exxon Mobil Corp. testify today at a Senate Judiciary Cmte. hearing on unrefined petroleum production.
NYS Senator Charles SchumerOK I get the Senate Committee are pointing their collective finger at the panel made up of oil executives, but aren’t the three remaining fingers on the Senate hand pointing back at them?  What is the Senate doing for us on this matter; and the House for the that matter?  Senator Schumer asked the oil compaines how much they are spending on alternative energy research, then said it was not enough.  Well Senator, I voted for you.  With regards to alternative energy research, what are you and your “buddies” in DC doing about alternative energy any way?
