In October 2015, Clinton Said "As We Move Away From Coal," America Needs "To Keep More Fossil Fuels Under The Ocean And In The Ground." CLINTON: "We have to move away from fossil fuels including gas, but that gas can be a useful bridge, especially as we move away from coal, and we move away from dirtier oil and some of the really bad alternatives. And we want to keep more fossil fuels under the ocean and in the ground. That's why I'm against arctic drilling and why I'm against offshore drilling because I don't think we should start that."
