Jason Bordoff, the Director of Columbia University's Center on Global Energy Policy, released the following statement regarding today's announcement by the Obama Administration proposing standards for future U.S. power plants.
We are at a transformational moment in energy history. Just a few years ago, all energy projections forecast increased imports, increased scarcity, and increased natural gas prices. Today, we’ve shifted from scarcity to abundance.
Energy matters profoundly to U.S. national security and foreign policy. It matters because the availability of reliable, affordable energy is essential to our economic strength at home, which is the foundation for our leadership in the world.
