The Biden administration should build, not backtrack, on energy progress

Former Secretary of Energy Dan Brouillette writes on The Washington Examiner that the Biden Administration should build on the previous administration’s energy progress.

The C3 Take
  • The Biden administration seems inclined to reverse just about every energy policy enacted by the Trump administration.
  • Under the Trump administration, the Department of Energy promoted an “all of the above” energy strategy that reduced emissions and created American energy independence.
  • If the President is truly interested in combatting climate change, he should build upon the successes of President Trump’s Department of Energy.

“The top priority must be to continue producing U.S. energy. Over the past four years, the Department of Energy advanced a true all-of-the-above policy that leveraged all fuels and all technologies to enhance our energy and national security as well as hasten the transition to less carbon-intensive fuels by developing nations. Biden could show a pragmatic streak and adhere to that policy because of its domestic, economic, and foreign policy benefits.”
