Is it true that Jimmy Carter spent a lot of federal money researching alternative fuels way back in the late 70’s, but then Reagan and Bush stopped all that research and gave the money to Big Oil instead?

    Unfortunately, this is true. President Carter created a more prominent Department of Energy, demanded more efficient vehicles from automakers, and focused Federal dollars on research into solar power and other alternative energy sources. The most recent Bush presidency was infamous for its ties to big oil companies. President George W. Bush also dealt with energy crises, but pushed for further oil and gas drilling in Alaska rather than conservation.
