In an era where we need to build green energy system rapidly, ‘permitting reform’ has become a confusing and divisive buzzword. In fact, the permitting process is not the source of delays in developing clean energy, nor should it be used as an excuse to rescue failing oil projects like the Mountain Valley Pipeline. We speak with an expert who knows what it takes to bring new clean energy into the system and has ideas about how to do it quickly.
The reading list:
- Report: A Progressive Take on Permitting Reform
- Factsheet for the Progressive Take on Permitting Reform
- Find the current global CO2 ppm here
- How many days ‘til 2030?
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 carbon that protects environmental justice communities.
Thanks for listening.
