Today, former House Speaker and potential 2012 Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich spoke at the Conservative Political Action Conference in Washington.
During his speech, Gingrich called for eliminating the Environmental Protection Agency, an agency with a forty-year track record of successfully protecting the air we breathe and water we drink, while spurring innovation and creating countless jobs. Gingrich suggested replacing the organization with a new "Environmental Solutions Agency" that would cater more to corporations.
Additionally, Gingrich cited President Obama's clean energy policy as "a war against American energy," and urged the President to place a greater emphasis on dirty, dangerous and expensive sources of energy like offshore oil, nuclear power, and "clean coal" resources.
