The Colonial Pipeline is a warning. Are we listening?

Richard Tucker on The Hill outlines how the Colonial Pipeline shutdown is a warning for our energy future.

The C3 Take
  • The shutdown of the Colonial Pipeline last month showed us how important fossil fuels and pipelines are to our economy and daily lives.
  • Instead of an “everything but” energy approach, which excludes fossil fuels and nuclear energy, the Biden administration should embrace an “all of the above” energy strategy.
  • Moving forward, the current administration should acknowledge the importance of fossil fuels in the energy transition and begin to invest in critical infrastructure such as pipelines.

“Americans should be optimistic about the future. Vaccinations are allowing the economy to open back up and pent-up demand is boosting businesses. Washington could help by passing a bipartisan infrastructure bill that invests in building things, especially more pipelines and power lines. We don’t need to hoard. We simply need more energy. The Colonial Pipeline is a warning. Let’s not make this mistake again.”
