Back in late 2008, President-elect Obama picked Nobel Prize-winning physicist Steven Chu as his energy secretary. Chu wanted to raise US gas price to the level of Europe, meaning $1.50/gal to $5.34/gal. Here is his own words: Somehow we have to figure out how to boost the price of gasoline to the levels in Europe," said in an interview with WSJ in September 2008. Their agenda at that time and still now is to control the climate change by reducing oil consumption by raising gas price and using alternative fuels, by banning drilling or coal energy. At the end, this policy is a disaster as US energy consumption is not reduced while gas price keeps going up hindering economic recovery. It will be gold mine in presidential election campaign for Republican candidate!

I just want to point out the energy policy Mr. Gingrich has been advocating since 2008.
You cannot have a policy of energy based on wind, solar and water power if the climate is unpredictable.
By forcing change on the climate, the potential for destroying the environment by making it too hot or cold is unpredictable, since there is no “cure” for climate change.
To base an energy policy on this is at best ludicrous and at worse criminal.
Nothing to see here people... move on, move on.
