Byers: Coal is down but not out

Europe has so many historical and cultural wonders that even the reddest of red-blooded Americans can find something European to be envious of.  After all, it was Europeans who gave us Led Zeppelin, pizza, and beer and personally, I think it’s high time we consider adopting the siesta as a national policy.  But what we don’t need to migrate across the pond are European energy prices.

Press Release

WASHINGTON, DC— With some politicians and interest groups heralding Europe’s energy policies as a model to follow, the U.S. Chamber’s Institute for 21st Century Energy examined what would happen if the U.S. was forced to pay EU energy prices.

The report is the third in the Energy Institute’s Energy Accountability Series. The series takes a substantive look at what would happen if energy proposals from candidates and interest groups were actually adopted. 


Heath Knakmuhs, senior director of Policy at the Institute for 21st Century Energy, and Sean Hackbarth provide an overview of the Chamber’s legal concerns with EPA’s power plant regulations. He gives an eyewitness account of Tuesday’s oral arguments at the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals. The Chamber is leading an economy wide coalition challenging the legality of the regulations on behalf of businesses, consumers and families.
