The video highlights the importance of utilizing affordable, reliable energy sources to reach our climate goals without leaving historically underserved communities behind.
(Washington, D.C.) –Natural Allies for a Clean Energy Future released a new video today of former Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter highlighting the role natural gas plays in a clean energy future. Mayor Nutter cautions against an all-or-nothing strategy when it comes to energy, asserting, it’s not good public policy and it’s not how we live. Natural gas, alongside renewable energy like wind and solar, must be part of America’s long-term strategy to reduce carbon emissions. Mayor Nutter warns if we move too quickly, we risk leaving millions of people behind. Natural gas is affordable, reliable, it is there when you need it, and everyone has access to it, creating a level playing field for most people across the United States. Mayor Nutter also recently penned an op-ed with former Congressman Kendrick Meek (D-FL) in the Washington Informer about the need to partner renewables with natural gas.
