Cassidy Releases Landmark Energy & Climate Policy Outline, Calls for Energy Operation Warp Speed

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Bill Cassidy, M.D. (R-LA) today released a visionary policy outline detailing how the U.S. can successfully reset its energy and climate policy and create a global Russia-free energy future. Cassidy, a member of the Senate Energy and Finance Committees, called for an Energy Operation Warp Speed to reestablish America’s energy dominance.

“The world will be safer and the planet healthier in a future free of Russian energy. This requires addressing global security, climate, and the ability of a family to afford a tank of gas,” said Dr. Cassidy. “We need an Operation Warp Speed for domestic energy production.”

Cassidy’s outline charts a four pronged approach for the U.S. to achieve its energy, national security, economic, and climate goals:

  1. Create an Energy Operation Warp Speed to invest in U.S. energy production and cut bureaucratic red-tape
  2. Build more resilient supply chains by stockpiling fuels and critical minerals, nature-proofing our infrastructure, and reducing supply chain constraints through innovative research
  3. Draw developing countries closer by financing smart and sustainable energy production in developing nations to limit dependence on Russia and China
  4. Coordinate with our allies to alleviate current energy crisis, end reliance on Russia, and reduce global emissions

Cassidy’s outline balances U.S. policy at the nexus of the environment, national security, economy, and affordable energy. It aims to restore America’s energy independence, bolster our national security and the security of our allies, reduce global emissions, and lower high energy costs harming American families.
