On Charlie Rose, EDF leader Fred Krupp endorses domestic drilling for new oil
EDF chief Fred Krupp appeared on the Charlie Rose show yesterday. For the most part, it was the usual stumping for cap-and-trade. However, Rose pushed him on the question of whether, in the short-term, we need to drill for new oil. After quite a bit of dodging and weaving, Krupp, rather startlingly, said we should assess domestic drilling on a case-by-case basis. Rose kept pushing, saying, “Do we need to be drilling for new oil in the short term?” Says Krupp: “yes, absolutely.” It’s about 18 minutes in.
