Washington Post reporter laments the energy crisis and high gas prices ‘aren’t spurring a green revolution’

Halper, whose “work focuses on the tensions between energy demands and decarbonizing the economy,” explained why, in his view, “an energy crisis and $ 5 gas aren’t spurring a green revolution,” as was his hope. 

“The United States is struggling to squeeze opportunity out of an energy crisis that should have been a catalyst for cleaner, domestically produced power,” he wrote. 

He continued, “After decades of putting the climate on the back burner, the country is finding itself unprepared to seize the moment and at risk of emerging from the crisis even more reliant on fossil fuels.”
