June 14, 2018 | About Us
The Carbon Capture Coalition today welcomed The Nature Conservancy as a participant. Coalition co-directors Jeff Bobeck and Brad Crabtree offered the following welcome messages:
“We are excited to welcome The Nature Conservancy as the newest participant in the Carbon Capture Coalition,” declared Brad Crabtree, co-director of the Carbon Capture Coalition and Vice President for Fossil Energy at Great Plains Institute (GPI). “The expanding membership of the Coalition and unprecedented bipartisan support in Congress reflect growing recognition of the essential importance of carbon capture for emissions reductions, domestic energy production, and jobs. Adding the Conservancy’s respected voice and grassroots membership in all 50 states to this effort will help us reach new audiences and engage more people in advocating for this common-sense solution.”
“The Nature Conservancy’s reputation, reach, and expertise are powerful additions to the Carbon Capture Coalition’s mission to accelerate the deployment of carbon capture,” said Jeff Bobeck, co-director of the Carbon Capture Coalition and Director of Energy Policy Engagement for the Center for Climate and Energy Solutions (C2ES). “We share the Conservancy’s view that innovation and collective action are the critical paths to progress, and also believe few climate technologies hold such great promise for innovation in the coming decade as carbon capture. The Conservancy will be an important and influential voice in working for policies that advance the capture, utilization and storage of CO2.”
