Protect the Environment While Growing the Economy

It started with National Parks and it’s time to continue our American legacy.

There is no planet B

The world needs to produce more electricity to meet energy consumption needs AND reduce greenhouse gas emissions. We know what we need to do: stop putting carbon dioxide into the atmosphere, take some of the carbon emissions that are already in the atmosphere out, and generate at least 2 times more electricity by 2050. We can do all three — at the same time. Climate change prevention and U.S. energy independence are not mutually exclusive objectives.

As a Conservative, conserving our environment is a huge priority. Climate change is a serious issue that deserves our attention. It acts as a threat multiplier, impacting every aspect of our lives whether we realize it or not. We must understand that it is not the planet that needs us, but rather, it’s we who need Mother Earth.

Together, we can make a difference and safeguard the planet we call home.

Since systematic scientific assessments began in the 1970s, the influence of human activity on the warming of the climate system has evolved from theory to established fact.

Will Hurd: “The RNC Should Be Offended By Donald Trump’s Behaviour”

Hurd tells Forbes that he would not have signed the RNC’s pledge to support any Republican nominee “as is”.

Climate change impacts everyone

Katherine Hayhoe, a renowned climatologist and Chief Scientist at The Nature Conservancy, taught me that caring about climate change is not limited to a specific kind of person. It is a shared concern for all humans.

Katherine also shared insightful data from the Yale program on climate change communication. Surprisingly, the data from Spring 2021 revealed that 72% of U.S. adults believe that global warming is happening. This statistic defied my expectations.

The key lies in more people recognizing the personal impact of climate change. It is only when individuals feel the effects firsthand that the necessary political will can emerge to address this pressing issue.

Climate change is a matter that affects us all, regardless of our background or beliefs.

Together, we can create the collective will to take meaningful action and ensure a sustainable future for generations to come.

President Biden's energy policies are a gift to China and Russia

Climate change prevention and U.S. energy independence is not mutually exclusive. However, many of President Biden’s decisions on the climate and energy policy harm American energy while overlooking the rising global demand for energy.

For example, Global natural gas consumption is projected to grow by over 40% between 2018 and 2050, reaching a staggering 200 quadrillion BTU by 2050.

By following Biden’s strategy to limit our own energy production that is cleaner than anywhere else in the world, we become dependent on foreign powers like China and Russia who will eagerly seize the opportunity to export their sources of dirtier fuels.

Our jobs, our economy, and our energy security are all at stake. It’s time for a change, a real change that puts Americans as the priority.

The United States, as the current global leader in oil and natural gas production, has experienced significant economic benefits from this trend. Job creation, improved trade balance, and enhanced competitiveness in select industries are among the positive outcomes.

Democrats propose restricting fossil fuel production in the U.S. as a means of addressing climate change.

Quote Mark
Any "solution" that lowers U.S. emissions but raises global emissions is not a solution at all.

Will Hurd, on bringing common sense to climate policy

This includes eliminating oil and gas production on public lands or banning hydraulic fracturing, a key technology behind the country’s production boom. Initially, these policies may seem reasonable since domestic oil and gas production contributes to the problem. It appears logical to eliminate emissions by stopping production.

However, reducing domestic production will only lead to increased imports, rather than reducing consumption.

This means the United States will lose the economic advantages of its oil and gas production without a proportional decrease in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. We must remember that climate change is a global issue, and what truly matters are global GHG emissions.

We should strive to ensure that oil and gas produced in the U.S. have the lowest possible GHG emissions. We should focus on creating domestic net zero carbon production.

Additionally, the U.S. must boost exports of clean technologies to become a global manufacturing hub. This shift in energy technology exports can be achieved through increased investment in research and development, as well as policies that prioritize the sale of these innovations. Only through innovation can we lower the cost of energy while reducing emissions. If we are to export our solutions around the world, particularly to developing nations, they will have access to affordable, clean options to transition their economies off dirtier fuels while improving their populations’ access to energy supplies.

This approach presents the United States with a unique opportunity to lead the world in not only reducing GHG emissions but also leveraging a dynamic energy industry in the process.

Will Hurd tells a great story about his life and his experiences in the CIA, private business, and as a Congressman.

The book also serves as a playbook for like minded Republicans that want to transform the party from the extremes of Trump back to a solutions based party that actually gets things done.

This is one of the best books I have ever read. Part personal story, part political analysis, but mainly just common sense thinking and analysis of solutions to problems.

Will Hurd is an amazing writer and person and I expect to see him do great things in the future.

This was a great read. As someone who tends to identify as an Independent or moderate, I thought Mr. Hurd made some great points and offered thoughtful solutions.

I hope he considers a run for political office again, I'd vote for him in a heartbeat.

A life long Republican I had lost hope that I would ever vote Republican again after the extremist views have taken over the party over the last 6 years.

This book covered all my values & concerns in a nuanced way that the majority of politicians today seem incapable of doing.

Hurd has the biography and the charisma and the God-given political chops to put the Republican Party — and the rest of the country — on notice.

I dream of an America where we have the smartest kids in the world. Every child in the U.S., regardless of location or age, should have access to a safe, world-class education.


The choice we face

In every decision we make, we stand at a crossroads. The path of division and quick fixes is well-trodden, but it’s time we consider a different route – one paved with unity and foresight.

Imagine an America where common sense prevails, where policies are crafted with the people’s best interests at heart, and our collective strengths are the foundation of national progress.

This is more than a possibility. It’s a choice we can make right now. By coming together, we have the power to foster a nation that champions innovation, inclusivity, and integrity.
