Sen. Lindsey Graham is willing to support a cap-and-trade bill if it allows for the expansion of offshore drilling and “clean coal” technologies. “We need to use the coal that God has given us,” Graham told Fox News’ Shannon Bream Thursday.
But Graham isn’t heartless when it comes to the damage carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gasses are doing to the enviroment. “I’m also willing to help the planet be a cleaner, safer place by controlling carbon in a way that doesn’t put us in the dark or out of business,” said the senator.
