Charles Hernick, the Director of Policy and Advocate for Citizens for Responsible Energy Solutions, speaks on the energy market from a conservative point of view. Hernick responds accordingly to perceived holes in the GOP’s stands on climate and energy. An advocate for free market structures within the energy industry, Hernick would like to see tax subsidies and write offs shrink. Hernick also explains the disconnect between the public and the energy advocacy community. Many people are balancing family and careers, leaving little room for energy awareness. Hernick has found that lack of attention towards energy is not due to lack of care, but rather lack of time.
