Energy Policy

Civil rights organization says high energy prices disproportionately affecting minorities

As food and gas prices continue to climb, who is being hit the hardest in the United States? During today's OnPoint, the Congress of Racial Equality's Niger Innis argues that minorities are being disproportionately affected by rising energy prices. Innis explains why he believes all forms of energy, including carbon intensive ones, should be used to solve our economic problems. He discusses his organization's call for the reversal of the recent Endangered Species Act listing of the polar bear and gives his thoughts on the effects of emissions reduction legislation on job growth and the economy.
