IPI Policy Basics: The Goal Should be Energy Abundance (Audio: Podcast)

There is no need for fossil fuel advocates to bash renewable energy, and vice versa. Instead, we should all be pursuing energy abundance as a strategy, and encouraging an “all of the above” approach. Innovation in energy should be favored by all, whether it’s innovation in cleaner burning fossil fuels, solar and wind, geothermal, or nuclear.

Led by IPI President Tom Giovanetti, with Resident Scholar Dr. Merrill Matthews.
