With 2007 comes a cleaner House
The House has taken a strong step toward cleaner energy by passing the Creating Long-Term Energy Alternatives for the Nation (CLEAN) Act. The CLEAN Act will shift nearly $14 billion in tax breaks for oil and natural gas companies to renewable fuels and energy efficiency programs. This quick action promises a Congress with an ambition to confront climate change and renewable energy issues with zeal. Hopefully, this momentum will continue as the bill advances to the Senate for vote.
