Clean Energy Innovation Doesn’t Have to Mean Putting America Last

Karly Matthews writes in RealClearEnergy that clean energy innovation can be beneficial to America.

  • Expanding our share of clean energy can and should be done in a way that benefits American consumers and our economy.
  • Importantly, policymakers must reduce barriers to domestic mining and processing to ensure that the U.S. is not beholden to China for its supply of rare earth minerals.
  • Doubling down on energy R&D and exporting innovation (and economic freedom) can also counter China’s growing influence in global markets.

“Reducing emissions and taking action on climate change should not mean ceding American dominance on the world stage. In fact, the world needs strong American leadership more than ever in the face of a challenge like climate change.

We – not the CCP – should be at the forefront of clean energy innovation that will transform the world.”
