U.S. Senate Candidate Rick Noriega Calls for Alternative Energy Strategy

U.S. Senate candidate Rick Noriega calls for wind, solar power in all Texas homes by 2019 (The Dallas Morning News) - "Texas Democratic Senate candidate Rick Noriega called Tuesday for all Texas households to get their electricity by renewable energy resources, such as wind and solar power, by 2019. "

The Dallas Morning News article includes in its news observation, "Mr. Noriega does not, however, support drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge in Alaska, which is believed to contain significant oil deposits." --A position supported by Noriega's opponent, Senator John Cornyn-- The article goes on to report that Mr. Cornyn's campaign dismissed Mr. Noriega's energy plan [for national renewable energy resources strategy] as unrealistic. Senator Cornyn's campaign manager Rob Jesmer wrote in a statement, "The sad truth is Rick Noriega is against many mainstream solutions [solutions such as drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge in Alaska and off shore drilling as advocated by Senator Cornyn] that will put America on the path to a comprehensive energy plan."
