No to Off-Shore Drilling; Yes to Wave Power

Because of both the Republicans and Democrats incomptence, America still does not have a long-term energy plan. As a result, the Republicans' short-sighted solution is to open up off-shore drilling. Amazingly, it appears the Democrats are going to -- yet once again -- roll over and acquiesce.

The Republicans and Democrats lack for foresight, vision and leadership would be funny -- if it weren't so tragic.

I have written an entire book on "clean technology," but one technology I will pursue as the next United States senator from Minnesota is wave power. I invite you to check out this cool video on its potential.

It's time for new thinking. It's time for real leadership.
