As your next Congressman, Robert will actively seek to attain total energy independence by:
- Economically incentivizing increased short-term natural gas production to compensate for the termination of energy imports.
- Increase funding for the research and development of safer and more efficient nuclear power plants.
- Advocating for increased funding to American universities and American companies for research and development of more efficient wind farms and solar panels.
Robert also believes that combating climate change requires the future of America’s energy sector to be in the hands of the American people. The short-term increase of domestic natural gas production will allow the United States to begin reducing its consumption of coal and petroleum while providing additional time to develop and implement a robust renewable energy network. As one of the most effective and least invasive energy sources in terms of the space required for production, nuclear power will be instrumental in America’s battle against climate change.
As the efficiency of solar and wind farms continues to increase, Captain Cornicelli will actively seek to bring those systems to Long Island. To get to this point, we need to increase access to grants for our universities and private businesses pursuing research in these areas. Instead of giving contracts to foreign firms, Robert wants to use American labor to put that money back into the American economy and back into the pockets of the American people.
Finally, Cap understands that the petroleum and coal industries provide work for millions of Americans. As your Congressman, he will make sure that any transition to a sustainable economy does not leave those workers behind.
