  • Europe’s energy crisis is largely of its own doing as green mandates have led to the EU rejecting common sense energy solutions such as fracking and, in many cases, nuclear power.

  • Policymakers should learn from Europe’s energy mistakes and embrace pragmatic and environmentally beneficial energy solutions that protect America’s national and energy security.

“There’s no getting around it. Europe’s energy crisis is a failure of policy and a clear case study of the danger of disassembling the stability that comes with fuel diversity in a misguided, rushed and irresponsible approach to the energy transition. The warning for American energy and climate policy is impossible to miss. Whether policymakers learn the right lessons remains to be seen.”
