Report: treating energy as source of prosperity, not pollution source
Affordable, reliable energy makes our lives--and our economy--better. It keeps our bills low, keeps jobs here at home, and keeps us secure in a dangerous world. Washington sees it differently: Our regulators act as if energy is primarily a source of pollution, not jobs or prosperity. They try to keep our resources in the ground, needlessly delaying projects for years and letting our energy infrastructure grow old. Most of our gas transmission and gathering pipelines predate 1970.It doesn't have to be all-or-nothing. There is a better way. We can and should strike a balance between economic growth and environmental stewardship. Efforts to reduce pollution should achieve real benefits for the environment and be compatible with real benefits for our economy.
    Our plan includes ideas to:
  • Connect the boom to consumers and companies by cutting through the clutter of the permitting process and accelerating the development of our infrastructure to secure reliable and affordable energy for years to come.
  • Produce more of our own energy resources by rewriting the Five-Year Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) and Natural Gas Leasing Plan to foster responsible offshore energy production, and making it so leases can be added to existing plans, meaning a more agile approach in response to market dynamics and national needs.
  • Give states greater control of federal land by empowering states to petition for more economic activity on lands within their borders, and giving them the opportunity to manage those lands in accordance with our laws.
  • End needless project delays by allowing agencies to make broader use of data from states and independent sources for environmental impact studies.
