In an op-ed published in the Washington Times, CRES President Heather Reams discussed why America should adopt an all-of-the-above strategy to lower energy costs, promote innovation, export American resources, and reduce global emissions—further strengthening the United States global positioning as a dominant leader in clean energy.
Recent CRES Forum polling shows 85% of Republicans support an all-of-the-above energy approach. As Heather wrote, “There is also strong support for other renewable and zero-carbon energy resources. Our polling shows that 86% of voters support hydroelectric dams, 85% support solar power, 79% support wind power, and 58% support nuclear generation.”
Heather pointed to recent legislative action taken by Republicans in the U.S. House of Representatives that promotes commonsense energy solutions: “[House Republicans] passed H.R. 1, the Lower Energy Costs Act, with bipartisan support to unlock our energy resources and solidify America’s global energy leadership. By removing regulatory barriers to new energy development and ensuring the United States has a strong domestic supply chain of critical minerals necessary for clean energy technologies, this legislation will accelerate our clean energy future, reduce our reliance on foreign adversaries like China, lower global emissions, and continue to ensure our environment is protected.”
