Energy

In order to stave off the worst impacts of our changing climate, we must keep the vast majority – at least 80 percent – of fossil fuels unburned. That is why LCVEF is committed to pursuing policies that swiftly transition to an economy powered entirely by clean energy sources, expand cost-saving energy efficiency measures, and halt increased fossil fuel extraction, which includes the phasing out new fossil fuel leasing on our public lands and oceans. Investing in renewable energy and energy efficiency will create good-paying jobs while lowering energy costs for consumers and reducing harmful pollution that threatens public health.
