    U.S. Wind Energy Propels Forward

    A new report finds the U.S. wind industry making impressive gains in domestic energy production due to strong and steady expansions in wind power capacity installations across the country, according to the American Wind Energy Association (AWEA).

    The report’s findings show that U.S. wind power capacity increased by 40 percent since 2011, now providing enough energy to power 13 million American homes and businesses. The looming expiration of the Production Tax Credit (PTC), however, threatens to ...More

    Kaine, Allen Clash on Climate Science

    Yesterday, former Governors Tim Kaine (D) and George Allen (R) sparred in their last debate of Virginia’s contentious U.S. Senate race. While their differences on tax breaks for Big Oil have been discussed in previous debates (Allen supports them, Kaine opposes them), the emergence of a major, albeit overlooked, point of disagreement surprised some: climate science.

    In responding to a misleading attack from Allen, Kaine rebuked Allen’s radical anti-science views:

    “You and I have a different point ...More

    The Comedy Stylings of Mitt Romney

    The League of Conservation Voters (LCV) this week launched a new web video hitting Mitt Romney for making some of the most serious issues our country faces into a punch line during his acceptance speech at the Republican National Convention. But Romney’s position is no laughing matter - if he is successful in November, Romney would be the first President to reject the scientific consensus on climate change.

    “Romney may treat climate change as nothing more ...More

    As the campaign season nears the final stretch, it’s hard to ignore the League of Conservation Voters (LCV).

    President Demands Truth From Romney

    In Denver this morning, President Obama delivered a spirited rebuke of Mitt Romney's blatant lies during last night's Presidential debate. Coming out swinging, a combative President Obama demanded that Romney be honest about the radical Romney-Ryan agenda instead of intentionally distorting the truth -- particularly on the issue of our nation's energy policy:

    Romney energy plan would cost jobs

    LCV President Gene Karpinski and United Steelworkers President Leo Gerard write in the Des Moines Register that Mitt Romney's energy plan would cost Iowa thousands of wind energy jobs:

    Iowans have seen firsthand that investing in wind energy creates jobs. That’s why it was especially disappointing that Mitt Romney recently told The Des Moines Register that if elected, he would let tax incentives for wind energy expire at the end of the year — a position ...More

    Romney's Joke Falls Flat

    Guest post by LCV Policy & Lobbying Intern Shelbi Dantic:

More specifically, the USNCDC explained, “Each of the last 15 months has seen above-average temperatures, something else that has never happened before in the ...More

    LCV Debates Energy in the 2012 Race

    Over the weekend, League of Conservation Voters President Gene Karpinski appeared opposite the Heritage Foundation’s David Kreutzer on C-SPAN’s Washington Journal to discuss the current state of U.S. energy policy and the emergence of America’s energy future as a political issue that’s shaping the post-convention election landscape as a clear choice between remarkably different candidates. Specifically, Gene notes that the Obama administration's recently finalized fuel efficiency standards will cut carbon pollution, create new jobs, reduce ...More
