In 60 Seconds: Environment & Clean Energy

*PDF Download: In 60 Seconds – Environment and Clean Energy

Innovation and conservation are the best path forward for improving the environment and reducing our carbon emissions. The U.S. has a history of success in the energy sector because we have embraced conservation-based policies that aim to do more with less rather than prohibition-based policies that ban certain types of energy or specific technologies.

Here’s the issue of the environment and clean energy in 60 seconds:

What’s at Stake

Innovation and conservation are the best path forward for improving the environment and reducing our carbon emissions. The U.S. has a history of success in the energy sector because we have embraced conservation-based policies that aim to do more with less rather than prohibition-based policies that ban certain types of energy or specific technologies.

We all want to protect the environment, but new extreme climate policies would:

  • Fail to reduce emissions
  • Have no actual impact on climate change
  • Make energy less reliable for all
  • Make energy too expensive for low-income individuals
  • Undercut innovation that would actually make energy cleaner

Our energy policies should prioritize creating a reliable and efficient energy supply, while integrating cleaner technologies.

Better Ways to Address Climate Change

Develop Innovative Ways to Make Clean Energy More Efficient and Reliable
Lawmakers should support the innovation of the private sector in areas such as:

  • Carbon capture and storage can capture the carbon dioxide emissions produced by different commercial processes.
  • Nuclear power is carbon-free and provides cheap and reliable electricity, making it essential to lowering U.S. carbon emissions both in the short- and long-term.

Innovation is the key to making our energy supply cleaner and reducing our carbon footprint.

Balance Clean Energy with Continued Access to Reliable and Affordable Energy

  • Extreme climate policies stifle innovation and backfire by making energy less reliable and less affordable for low-income individuals.
  • We should encourage and support the development of new technology without pushing it beyond its current capabilities.
