Europe’s move toward decarbonization 30 years ago has resulted in skyrocketing energy prices, the need for severe conservation, possible rationing that could shut down entire industrial sectors and likely future blackouts. It is the result of the continent moving to unreliable and intermittent renewable energy before it was ready to replace fossil fuels and being overly dependent on Russia for natural gas—the backup fuel to renewables. European countries have closed coal and nuclear...

Key Vote NO on H.R. 5376

The American Energy Alliance urges all members to oppose H.R. 5376, the 2022 budget resolution reconciliation legislation.

Key Vote YES on S.J. Res. 55

The American Energy Alliance urges all Senators to support S.J. Res. 55, the Congressional Review Act resolution of disapproval for the Council on Environmental Quality revisions to implementation rules for the National Environmental Policy Act.

Construction of infrastructure of all types takes far too long, and costs far too much, in the United States. One of the primary reasons for this excessive time and expense is the tangled mess of the NEPA review process. This costly and lengthy...
