Biden climate goals mean conflict with natural gas, the resource behind recent emissions reductions

The Washington Examiner’s Abby Smith writes that Biden’s climate goals mean conflict with natural gas.

The C3 Take
  • The shift from coal to natural gas has led to America reducing emissions faster than any other nation.
  • Climate goals should aim to reduce emissions, not target particular fuel sources.
  • Overreaching government mandates that reduce emissions are largely unnecessary, as private industries are already reducing emissions. Government should work with our energy sector, not against it.

“Nonetheless, as the power sector has become cleaner, Biden has moved the goalposts to target carbon-free power by 2035, a more aggressive timeline than most states and utilities. Biden has also ratcheted up the stringency of the target to eliminate carbon entirely, rather than simply striving for a cleaner grid.”
