Homegrown Energy Means Lower Prices and Lower Emissions

Heather Reams writes in RealClearEnergy about the importance of domestic energy production.

The C3 Take
  • While election years are contentious, lawmakers should prioritize unleashing domestic energy production to reduce global emissions and lower energy costs.
  • U.S. natural gas, for instance, is 41% cleaner than Russian LNG and if Europe were to replace all of its Russian gas with American, the continent would reduce its CO2 emissions by 218 million tons annually.
  • The U.S. is also making breakthroughs in renewable and nuclear power which will provide clean, affordable, and reliable energy to consumers.
  • America can capitalize on its energy abundance by passing meaningful permitting reform to bring more energy projects online.

“Republican lawmakers have been vocal about the need for permitting reform, and while there are ongoing conversations with their Democrat counterparts, the looming November election has seemingly put these discussions on hold. House Republicans continue to advance permitting measures out of the House, only for them to die in the Democrat-led Senate. Any durable policy must have buy-in from both political sides, and permitting for energy projects fits the bill.”
