Washington, D.C. — In the State of the Union address last month, President Barack Obama called for “an all-out, all-of-the-above strategy” to develop cleaner and cheaper American energy, that creates more jobs. On Thursday, March 1, the Center for American Progress Action Fund will host an event with Sen. Ron Wyden and Congressman Ed Markey, among other guests, for a moderated conversation and panel discussion.
Changes in the coal, natural gas, and petroleum sectors are increasing pressures to export fuels that are homegrown in the United States or refined here. The prospect of significant increases in exports of U.S. coal, liquified natural gas, and refined products made from tar sands oil transported via pipeline from Canada is increasingly a subject of heated debate.
Please join us for a two-panel discussion that will delve into fossil-fuel export questions ranging from the impact on domestic energy prices, to the possible environmental and social effects of export infrastructure, to what the proper balance of U.S. export strategy should be between raw materials and manufactured goods.
