New Empowerment Alliance Fact Sheet Highlights
Importance of Energy Jobs
WASHINGTON – The Empowerment Alliance (TEA) today released a new fact sheet highlighting the importance of energy jobs, emphasizing what is at stake if America fails to capitalize on affordable, abundant, clean, domestic energy. NCR’s new fact sheet can be viewed here.
“The American energy renaissance has made energy cheaper and more affordable to all Americans, while also securing our independence and leadership on the world stage,” said Republican Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA). “America’s abundance of natural gas keeps the lights on, lowers costs for consumers, and drives our economy. Radical energy policies only threaten the livelihoods of millions of workers and deny affordable energy to millions more. We have to stand up for a brighter energy future and natural gas has a major role to play — many thanks to The Empowerment Alliance for highlighting the importance of natural gas to our economy and our everyday life — Americans need the facts, not fantasies, on our energy future.”
“Americans couldn’t afford job-killing, costly policies like the Green New Deal before the pandemic and they certainly can’t today. And that is exactly why our message is resonating not only with policymakers but also everyday people who rely on natural gas to keep them from choosing between paying their energy bill or putting food on the table,” said Jim Nathanson, TEA Executive Director. “Natural gas will play a critical role in our nation’s economic recovery and help millions of Americans save on energy costs who were already living pay-check-to-pay-check before the pandemic.”
