Alaskans deserve the best possible situation for themselves and their state, and they deserve the right to make their own decisions on what happens in their state.
Fairbanks, AK (PRWEB) September 06, 2011
Scott Keller, Independent Presidential contender for 2012, takes strong stand for the environment by supporting the Alaska Natural Gas Development Authority's Propane Project and by preserving Alaska's wilderness by coming out strongly against Alaskas' Pebble Mine Project, drilling in ANWR, the Susitna Dam Project, and the Parks Highway Natural Gas Pipeline Route.
"Being Pro-America, Pro-People, Pro-Local Autonomy, I want to share my strong views on supporting the Alaska Natural Gas Development Authority's propane project ("ANGDA") and that I do not support other proposed Alaskan energy projects such as ANWR drilling (an unnecessary and risky project to continue our dependence on fossil fuels), Pebble Mine(a huge copper & gold mining operation), the Susitna Hydroelectric project, and a natural gas pipeline down the Parks Highway which would run through Denali National Park, all projects with the potential for great environmental harm to Alaska's pristine wilderness," says Scott Keller.
From President Obama's Federal Pipeline Coordinator, through three Governors, nine Alaskan Legislatures, and eight years of lost time, the elected officials of Alaska and Americas' Presidents have purposely, year after year, ignored the Will of The People since the Alaska Natural Gas Development Authority was established by Citizen's Initiative and 138,000 Alaskan voters in 2002. These continued actions of not funding ANGDA to do its statutory duties show the disdain of Alaska's elected officials towards Alaskan/American voters. This is also mirrored on the Federal level by the statements of President Obama's Federal Pipeline Coordinator's refusal to recognize the Will of the People via the Citizen's Initiative which created ANGDA. Says Keller, "Alaskans deserve the best possible situation for themselves and their state, and they deserve the right to make their own decisions on what happens in their state."
"My Presidency would not tolerate the ignoring of the people, and I fully support the efforts of ANGDA to bring propane off the North Slope of Alaska, for use by all Alaskans, including rural Alaskans for cooking and heating fuel, plus projects like the ROUSCH CleanTech trucks running on propane replacing many current Private and Governmental 'fleet' vehicles."
Keller states that in his presidency, he would instruct his "Federal pipeline coordinator" to help ANGDA rather than hinder it, and would promise the full weight and support of the Presidency towards developing Alaska's natural gas and its by-products like propane in a clean and efficient way in order to bring the best revenues & in-State resources to the State of Alaska and cheap, clean fuels to Americans, while including Alaskans and its huge reserves of natural gas in developing futuristic approaches to energy and other issues.
The Keller campaign is fully collaborative with the commitment in having an open channel of communication with The People. The positions described here are only a few projects in the State of Alaska. Keller states that his green, pro-environmental Presidency will cover the entire Nation, until air emissions are zeroed out and other energy sources like solar power are in place and running America's motor.
"I'd love to share all of the possibilities with you and invite your input and participation far ahead of the election in November 2012," says Mr. Keller. The Keller Campaign website is: http://www.keller2012.com where visitors can find his issue stances on the environment and other issues.
