Green dreams collide with energy crisis reality

Will Marshall writes in The Hill that green dreams are colliding with energy crisis realities.

The C3 Take
  • The energy crisis that we are witnessing has emphasized the important role that fossil fuels will continue to play in our energy mix.
  • Voters are increasingly aware of climate change and are looking to policymakers to reduce its future impacts.
  • Congress and the administration can address greenhouse gas emissions and high energy costs by unlocking ways for the free market to lead with an “all of the above” energy strategy.
  • Investments in federal energy R&D will also accelerate the breakthroughs that are needed to reduce the green premium for next-generation technologies.

“Instead of frightening the public with prophecies of ecological disaster, our leaders should level with voters – and activists – about the role legacy fuels are bound to play for decades to come, in our country and especially the rest of the world. That will help them set a more realistic and politically sustainable pace for America’s clean energy transition.”
