American innovation can reduce emissions and protect Energy Security
Because of American innovation, the U.S. has achieved energy security, all while continuing to reduce emissions. But proposals and policies by the EPA and states like California to enact a de facto ban on new internal combustion engines would threaten our energy security and stifle emissions-reducing innovation.
The EPA is proposing a rule that would require 70% of new vehicles to be EVs by 2032. Worse yet, California is moving forward with a ban on new sales of internal combustion vehicles in the next decade. If implemented, these policies will force the U.S. passenger fleet to rely almost entirely on one vehicle technology – electric vehicles – ignoring the emissions reduction potential from liquid fuels and compromising our U.S. energy security.
The world is growing and will need more energy, not less. We need all options on the table, including liquid fuels, to meet this demand, to maintain our energy security, and to continue to make meaningful emissions reductions from the transportation sector.
