CRES Statement on Critical Minerals Hearing

“You will find no better champion and ambassador than Senator Murkowski when it comes to understanding the importance of critical minerals to our national security and our energy security.  Senator Murkowski has been sounding the alarm on this issue for years and is the lead sponsor of the American Mineral Security Act, which CRES supports.  The hearing Chairman Murkowski is holding is timely as we have seen firsthand during this Covid-19 pandemic how vulnerable our supply chain is and why we need to move aggressively on critical minerals. Our energy system and the growth of clean energy depend on a secure and abundant supply of critical minerals—from uranium to power our nuclear fleet to lithium critical to the blossoming energy storage and electric vehicle markets.” — Heather Reams, Executive Director, Citizens for Responsible Energy Solutions.
