Getting climate, energy & environment news right.

On Energy and Climate, the Solution Is Here

Mike Sommers writes in RealClearEnergy about the role that American energy can play in reducing emissions.

The C3 Take
  • American energy is an often overlooked tool in the fight against climate change.
  • Domestically produced natural gas has a carbon footprint that is almost half the size of Russian gas, while American crude is 50% cleaner than Venezuelan oil.
  • With global energy demand expected to grow rapidly through 2050, American energy can be exported to meet demand and displace dirtier power sources such as Chinese coal.
  • Stronger domestic energy security can also protect consumers from future energy price shocks.

“The good news is America has the natural gas and oil to be more energy secure, to power our economy and Americans’ daily lives, and to keep us on the path to a lower carbon future. The challenges are big, but so are the opportunities. The future is ours to shape, but only if we work together. We invite members of Congress, the administration and leaders across the country to join us in rolling up our sleeves to unleash American natural gas and oil.”
