E&E News cited CEI's Senior Fellow Marlo Lewis on the Administration's response to the recent federal climate report.
One reason the administration is struggling with its response to the report is because it lacks climate science experts, said Marlo Lewis, a senior fellow at the conservative Competitive Enterprise Institute, which has attacked established climate science. He said any response to the report will bring a new wave of critical coverage. Instead, he said, the White House should promote energy generation.
"What would help in the long run is an in-house capability to make the moral, economic, and scientific case for free-market energy," Lewis wrote in an email. "That could help Trump immensely with his base, party, and the general public, especially if the economy remains strong over the next two years."
