Jim Sykes on Energy & Oil

Support the All-Alaska Gas Line

Sykes supports the All-Alaska Gas Line, which preserves US control, can serve West Coast needs, the route is already permitted and it is most economically and environmentally feasible. Alaska can lead the way building the all-Alaska gas line to tidewater that will also serve the rail belt. Pilot projects for hydrogen production and Sun, wind, and geothermal energy sources are also essential.
