With $25 trillion in global energy infrastructure to be built by 2030 and wind and solar becoming cost competitive, a clean energy revolution is underway. The American people and the economy would benefit from joining this movement.
At a Senate confirmation hearing, former Texas Gov. Rick Perry, President Trump's choice to be Energy Secretary, showed a limited grasp of the relationship between fossil fuels and climate change, and did not make the connection to the need to transition to a low-carbon energy system.
In their confirmation hearings, Secretary of State nominee Rex Tillerson, EPA Administrator nominee Scott Pruitt and Secretary of Energy nominee Rick Perry stopped short of denying climate change is real. But they insisted—at odds with the science—that there is uncertainty about the causes and effects.
