Conservatives’ decade of clean energy and climate leadership

Rich Powell writes in The Hill about conservatives’ leadership on climate and clean energy.

  • For instance, the 2020 Energy Act, which was spearheaded by Senators Lisa Murkowski and John Barrasso, was the most comprehensive energy legislation in more than a decade and included funding for several advanced energy R&D programs.
  • Meanwhile, the Conservative Climate Caucus is one of the largest caucuses in Congress and makes up more than one-third of the House Republican conference.
  • Climate change is an issue that conservatives are embracing and winning.
