Sen. Cantwell: Shellfish Are Dying Because of Our ‘Overdependence’ on Fossil Fuel
CANTWELL: "Governor Perry, I like several things that you had to say. It was one thing I definitely want to bring up that’s very concerning and that is that you said as it related to an energy strategy, we cannot -- as you said, quote, 'compromise economic growth'. Well, I guarantee you today we’re compromising economic growth because of our overdependence on fossil fuel. It is having an impact on the natural resources economy in my state. It’s having an effect on shellfish and the ability to seed."
