More U.S. Mining Is a Win for People and the Planet

Rep. Pete Stauber (R-MN) and Danielle Butcher Franz of ACC write in RealClearEnergy about the economic and environmental benefits of domestic mining.

The C3 Take
  • The Biden administration has sent mixed signals in its energy policy.
  • As the administration has promoted the use of renewables and EVs, it has blocked domestic projects that would mine the minerals that are are needed to power these technologies.
  • Transferring our supply of rare earth minerals from China, who currently holds a monopoly on the market, to the U.S. would improve our energy security and global environment.

“The fact remains that when we employ an ‘out of sight, out of mind’ mining strategy, both Americans and our environment lose. Not only do Americans lose out on good-paying jobs, but we’re supporting a dirtier, unsafe industry abroad. If we care about our planet and our people, the U.S. will take control of its mining future.”
