“The thing that people need to understand too is the ability of American industry to do things cleaner. [It is] more environmentally safe to produce energy and minerals here than other countries in the world. We are head and shoulders above other countries when it comes to that.

“America needs a regulatory environment that reflects the vast differences between fusion and fission and allows these technologies to be implemented and managed accordingly. We also need a national energy framework that can bolster this emerging technology with research and development and support the integration of fusion energy into an “all-of-the-above” energy portfolio.”

“We should be talking about energy freedom, new technologies, and discoveries. Instead the debate in Washington continues to be about how much we should subsidize solar or ethanol, and whether we should prohibit nuclear energy or coal.

“NEPA reforms are important to building green energy infrastructure, resiliency, and the things that are important to [Democrats]. … There is a more efficient, better way to do it that doesn’t compromise the integrity of the environmental protection at all by streamlining the NEPA process.”

“Conservatives have real solutions for climate. Ones that are technologically realistic, economically feasible, and politically sustainable. Over the past decade, conservatives have institutionalized big, bold goals, anchored in clean energy breakthroughs as the best solution to solving the climate challenge.”
