  • Our attitudes and actions will become our legacy

    Remember this name: Mordecai Ham. I’ll tell you at the end who he is.

    To the editor:

    A study by the American Energy Alliance estimates that, over a thirty-year period, businesses  could create 1.2 million new jobs, generate $2.2 trillion in total tax receipts and add $8 trillion to our economy by permanently lifting the ban on offshore production in the Outer Continental Shelf.
