Let me make sure you understand where I am coming from. I am an all-in energy person. I want to use all the resources we have. My first and foremost thing on this Energy Committee is to do everything I can to maintain energy independence in the United States of America. And then we can show the world how to clean up the climate by using them with the technology that we can be developing and innovation technology that needs to be done. I think the bill we passed in the omnibus bill is a tremendous step in that investment. That's the way we should be going. - Joe Manchin, 2021, quoted by E&E News
I am not a climate denier. We all need to take care of our planet. We must be good stewards of our earth and water. We know it's the right thing to do… We can address climate change together though innovation and technology. We already have new markets for coal — carbon products. We know investing in carbon capture utilization and storage is critical for a lot of reasons. It's a win-win on both sides. We know new technologies are progressing every day. - Shelley Moore Capito, 2021, quoted by The Register-Herald
Climate change is a global challenge and requires a global solution. But any agreement that gives major emitters like China a pass is simply window dressing. As John Kerry himself has noted, the United States could totally stop using coal, gas, and oil and it wouldn't be enough unless the rest of the world joined in. We would still experience wildfires on the West Coast, droughts in the Midwest and hurricanes on the East Coast. David McKinley, 2021, press release
