Inside Sources cites Director of the Center for Energy and Environment Myron Ebell on U.S. energy independence:
Myron Ebell, director of the Center for Energy and Environment at the Competitive Enterprise Institute, scoffed at China’s pledge to reduce emissions, noting the country continues building coal-fired power plants “at a very fast clip” as does India.
He noted that China’s emissions have been soaring since the 1970s and are now larger than the U.S. and Europe combined.
“China and India are pursuing realistic policies to benefit their people, which is odd for a communist country,” Ebell said. “Whereas the American republic is going to embark on a course of energy poverty and economic devastation.”
