Green groups made aggressive lobbying blitz for Manchin's climate bill, financial disclosures show
President Biden ‘speaks nonsense’ when talking about climate agenda, energy policy: Brian Brenberg
Fox News contributor Brian Brenberg and Marco Trends Advisors founding partner Mitch Roschelle reacts to President Biden’s announcement of an additional release from the U.S. Strategic Petroleum Reserve.
Some of the nation's largest green energy interest groups and companies spent millions of dollars lobbying in favor of the Inflation Reduction Act, the massive climate and tax bill President Biden signed in August.
Trade groups including the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA), American Clean Power Association (ACP) and Growth Energy reported spending hundreds of thousands of dollars over the summer lobbying for the legislation, according to third quarter lobbying disclosures released late last week. Additionally, major electric vehicle (EV), solar panel and wind turbine makers also reported lobbying efforts for the bill.
"With the stroke of the pen, a clean energy future is now the law of the land," ACP Heather Zichal said in a statement after Biden signed the bill on Aug. 16.
SEIA CEO Abigail Ross Hopper added that the law would ensure that the U.S. deploys "enough clean energy to substantially decarbonize the electric grid and tackle climate change." The SEIA, which is the nation's largest solar industry group, also issued a fact sheet listing the biggest misconceptions about the legislation.
