Statements about Energy

"We have only one person on the (TVA) board, to my knowledge, who even has any corporate board experience."

"(Environmentalists) said ‘We’re only going to stop coal mining above 2,000 feet.’ ... Well guess where all the coal in the state of Tennessee is? Above 2,000 feet."

"Three of our cities are among the top five worst cities in the U.S. for asthma."

"Studies show that if we opened one reserve in Alaska now, in five years, gas prices could be at $2 a gallon."

New energy standards will take away "our freedom of choice and selection in the light bulbs we have in our homes."
