June 30, 2020 | News

The statement below on the release of the House Select Committee on Climate Change Majority Staff Report Solving the Climate Crisis can be attributed to Carbon Capture Coalition Director Brad Crabtree:

“The Carbon Capture Coalition thanks House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Select Committee on the Climate Crisis Chair Kathy Castor (D-FL) for recognizing carbon capture’s essential role in meeting mid-century emissions reductions targets. Carbon capture offers a unique, bipartisan opportunity to reduce our nation’s carbon emissions while preserving and creating high-wage energy, industrial and manufacturing jobs. We are pleased the Select Committee’s majority report contains a number of common-sense federal policy measures that enjoy bipartisan support in Congress and will accelerate domestic economywide deployment of carbon capture technologies in the industrial, power, and direct air capture sectors. The Coalition looks forward to working with the full Committee to advance the role of carbon capture in federal legislative initiatives.”
