In a big win for climate activists, Joe Manchin withdrew his flawed permitting bill. Climate folks should be impressed with their growing political clout, but what comes next? How does our country, in an equitable way, build the urgently needed transmission infrastructure that we need?
The reading list:
- EENews discusses the fallout of Manchin's withdrawal
- The Climate MInute discusses the connection of Maine's Transmission line to the National issue.
- DRVolts podcast on permitting reform
- The Grijalva NEPA reform bill
Because we recognize the necessity of personal accountability for our actions, because we accept responsibility for a building a durable future and because we believe it is our patriotic duty as citizens to speak out, we must insist the United States transform it’s energy sector, over the next decade, under a just and equitable plan, that uses regulations, investments and a price on that protects environmental justice communities.
Thanks for listening.
