AEA Keeps Leaders Honest on Energy Production

American Energy Advocacy Campaign Continues with Two New Ads

“More energy production from resources owned by the American people  — on and offshore – means lower energy prices for American families and businesses.  Some people get it.  Some don’t.”

Washington, DC
– The American Energy Alliance (AEA) continues its efforts to keep leaders accountable for their energy policies with two new radio spots, “Financial Disaster” and “New American Energy.”  AEA’s latest ads will run starting today in Colorado and Mississippi.

AEA President Thomas Pyle issued the following statement:

“Our continued education efforts are driven by a simple but powerful idea; more production from resources owned by the American people – on and offshore — means lower energy prices for American families and businesses.  Some people get it.  Some don’t.  But we will keep working to educate voters, government officials, and other stakeholders until everyone understands this fundamental fact. 

“Frankly, I am shocked the even now some of our elected leaders, like Congressmen Udall in Colorado, continue to support energy policies that will undermine the economy of both the Nation and of individual families.”

“At the same time, it is appropriate to recognize those who support the right policies for American consumers.  That’s why we are pleased to alert voters in Mississippi that their Senators did the right thing by fighting to lift the ban on the decades old offshore energy moratorium.”

Script of the “Financial Disaster” ad follows:

Energy costs are soaring and our economy is in financial crisis.  Congressman Mark Udall’s u-turn on energy policy is in the wrong direction for Colorado families.

After 34 votes against additional exploration and cheaper energy, Mark Udall supports a new energy plan that studies say will cost America over 600,000 jobs and reduce household earnings in Colorado by over 340 million dollars.

The Udall plan also calls for increased taxes on energy and publicly held company profits – squeezing our pension and 401K plans that are already reeling from bank failures and the mortgage disaster.  Mark Udall’s votes helped create America’s energy and economic problems.  His new plan is not a solution.

Call Mark Udall at 303-650-7820.  Tell him Colorado families can’t afford his energy plan.

Script of the “New American Energy” follows:

Energy costs continue to soar and our economy is in financial crisis.  Lifting the ban on offshore exploration is the first step toward increasing domestic energy production.  New domestic exploration will mean lower energy costs for our families, new investment in our economy and more Mississippi jobs.  Senators Roger Wicker and Thad Cochran understand this.

Our Senators fought to lift the Congressional ban on offshore exploration and production, paving the way for new American energy.  Call Senator Wicker at (601) 965-4644 and Senator Cochran at (601) 965-4459.  Thank them for working to lift the offshore energy ban and tell them to fight against the forces that threaten to stop offshore exploration before it even starts.

The American Energy Alliance (AEA) is a recently formed not-for-profit 501(c)(4) organization that advocates for free-market energy and environmental policies.  It is affiliated with the Institute for Energy Research (IER), another not-for-profit – founded in 1989 – that conducts intensive research and analysis on the functions, operations, and government regulation of global energy markets.  Both AEA and IER maintain that freely-functioning energy markets provide the most efficient and effective solutions to today’s global energy and environmental challenges and, as such, are critical to the well-being of individuals and society.
