Sen. Dorgan: Do Energy Before Climate Change

Sen. Byron Dorgan (D-ND), speaking to an energy crowd in Williston, the heart of the oil patch, says:

“I have been pushing very hard, so far unsuccessfully, let’s not bring up climate change first. Let’s bring up energy first,” he said. “I think that is the best way for us to proceed. I feel very strongly that we need to do energy policy that is smart, effective; that produces and conserves.”

Dorgan is a member of the Senate Democratic leadership, and it’s an encouraging statement of priorities.
