President Biden hit the ground running with a slew of executive actions and commitments on energy and climate change. His decisions represent a path to fundamentally remake America’s energy and transportation sector, from banning new oil and gas lease sales on federal lands to re-entering the Paris climate agreement and cancelling the Keystone XL pipeline.
The new administration has visions of fully decarbonizing the power sector by 2035 and making a massive, government-led push to move America’s transportation system to electric power. These goals are lofty, but what does this agenda mean for everyday Americans? How will new policies affect states where the federal government owns much of the land? What will these decisions mean for energy prices, the economy, and our environment?
Join us as we discuss these critical issues and offer proactive, market-oriented policy reforms that could benefit America environment and economy.
