 Biden Admin’s ‘Bipartisan’ NEPA Rule Reverts to Outdated 1970s Regulations
 April 30, 2024
The Biden Administration White House Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ) released a final rule to implement changes to the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), including reforms passed in the 2023 Fiscal Responsibility Act (FRA). However, this rule goes beyond the FRA to add new review requirements for projects under NEPA, which will lead to a slower, more burdensome process that introduces new litigation risks.

Conservatives’ decade of clean energy and climate leadership
March 24, 2024
A decade ago, in 2014, The Guardian ran an article on the verge of Republicans taking complete control of Congress titled, “Meet the Republicans in Congress who don’t believe climate change is real.” The names on that list included Sens. Lisa Murkowski and John Barrasso, and Reps. Cathy McMorris Rodgers, Greg Walden and Kevin McCarthy, among others. For those who have paid attention to the clean energy and climate debate, especially in Congress over the last several years, that list is hilariously ironic. Each of the lawmakers The Guardian labeled as “a climate change skeptic” is now seen as a leading advocate for clean energy innovation, commonsense environmental protections, and America’s role in reducing global emissions.

A Company Has Developed A Way To Store The Sun’s Energy In Hot Rocks
January 18, 2024
Battery packs cost a lot of money, so what if we had another way of actually storing power? Well, a new Californian startup company, Antora Energy, think they may have the answer and it’s not unlike a theory we probably knew as cavemen and cavewomen. The firm has a theory that energy could be stored inside battery-like boxes in really hot rocks. It’s an idea reminiscent to having a fire next to rocks, just as we would have done as early humans.

Conservatives Are Cutting A Clear Path To Solving Climate Change. Here’s How
December 9, 2022
Congressional leadership transitions bring forth new committee assignments, new priorities and a new energy policy vision. While some suggest a new Republican majority in the U.S. House of Representatives will work to undo recent efforts on addressing climate change, we disagree with that premise. Look, economic inflation, high gas and electricity prices, unrest in Eastern Europe, increasing global carbon dioxide emissions and global supply chain chaos are all realities. Combined, there is an ongoing global energy crisis. But how to solve this crisis has created false choices in Washington. Debates on renewables versus fossils, economy versus environment, or 100% global emissions reduction versus inaction in the U.S. are clouding the path forward on the global challenge.

Conservative climate groups to wield power in GOP House
December 9, 2022
Conservative clean energy groups have built considerable influence with Republican lawmakers over the last four years. Now they’re set to take a leading role as the GOP prepares to take over the House. ClearPath, Citizens for Responsible Energy Solutions and a coalition of similar organizations have spent millions on lobbying efforts and have consistently gotten an audience with lawmakers to make the case for the “energy innovation” agenda. They’ve become star witnesses for Republicans at hearings. They’ve also helped prod Republicans on climate change, moving the party away from outright denialism. GOP leaders have adopted many of the groups’ energy policy talking points. Leaders of the groups say their ultimate plan is to rival Democratic efforts.

Joyce said. “I’m proud to introduce this legislation and will always fight for policies that allow the United States to provide cleaner, cheaper, and more reliable energy here at home and abroad.”

Biden energy secretary insists nuclear essential to clean energy initiatives
August 14, 2022
Jay Faison, in a Fox News op-ed published in Jan. 2020, argued that clean energy supporters “should” support nuclear energy. “It’s easy to say nuclear power is too expensive or unsafe,” Faison wrote. “It’s simple, and the Democratic base likes this claim. However, this point generally confuses the distinction between keeping existing plants open and building new ones.” He notes that no one is advocating for building the “Gen 3” reactors first designed in the 1950s, and that “there are exciting prospects ahead thanks to nuclear innovation.”
