Skip to comments.Crenshaw Introduces Bipartisan Carbon Capture Legislation
Posted on 07/20/2019 11:57:15 PM PDT by House Atreides
Representative Dan Crenshaw, joined by Representatives Cuellar (TX-28), Flores (TX-17), Gonzalez (TX-15), Lamb (PA-17), Lucas (OK-3) and Walberg (MI-7), introduced the Launching Energy Advancement and Development through Innovations for Natural Gas (LEADING) Act of 2019. The legislation prioritizes research and development funding for technology that captures carbon emissions by instructing the Department of Energy to utilize up to $50 million each year of existing funds. Ultimately, the bill seeks to develop more carbon capture technology to make it more accessible, resulting in widespread use and lower carbon emissions from power plants across the country. Yesterday, the Senate companion bill advanced out the Committee on Energy and Natural Resources with unanimous support.
Carbon capture technology has huge potential to dramatically reduce our emissions, said Crenshaw. Our very own Net Power Plant, in La Porte, Texas employs this technology and has achieved zero emissions while burning enough natural gas to power 5,000 homes in the Houston area. This is an important step forward for green energy solutions that work towards our goal of lowering global emissions through clean, cheap, and exportable energy.

Plant trees. Everybody likes trees.
And plants LOVE CO2...its their food and they thrive with it.
It’s a giant waste of money and it’s BAD for the planet, CO2 is good for plants and reduces their need for water, the world is getting greener as the atmospheric CO2 level rises and NASA was recently forced to admit it.
CO2 from human activity doesn’t have a significant effect on global temperatures but if it did we should be pumping as much as we can into the atmosphere because we have much more to fear from global cooling than we do from global warming, the world has had much more CO2 in the past and it was much greener when it did.
Wonder what’s with the heel-face turn; he voted “nay” on the so-called “Climate Action Now Act” (HR 9) back in May.
Time for mandatory field trips: Beijing, Mexico City, and Bangalore.
Then try to keep a straight face while pitching nonsense about how Americans can control the environment.
I meant field trips for congretards.
I like trees, too.
Crenshaw did some tds on the view
Or some such show
He was off my list six months ago.
Hes a combat vet so very disappointing
Oh well. Im a combat vet. Crenshaw is what he does
Could cheap recapture methods bankrupt movement for carbon credits?
The carbon capture scheme or the plant trees scheme...would create an impossible to manage carbon credit trading scheme. If you advocated both...then carbon credits would disappear in a matter of months.
On the face of any significant problem that the world has seen in the past hundred years, it’s always innovation to cures or lessens the problem. Just taxing people or inventing pyramid finance schemes...always fails. It’s a historic thing. We drive cars that get 35 mpg today, only because innovation came along and made it possible. You can schedule an operation to occur at 8 AM today, and check out by 4 PM only because of innovation. We can cut the McDonalds staff by one-third because of automation and innovation. We can pick up a lost dog with no collar on him, but ID him through his chip, and reunite him with the owner in a matter of hours via innovation.
What has taxing ever got you?
I think the Washington terminology is fooling people. I think this is realy funding for a new, more efficient gas power plant. Needs a little help getting over the initial capital hump.
Yes. And then explain why these places are EXEMPT from any climate change legislation.
Crenshaw is a deep state phony. 2 weeks ago he backed a massive increase in H1-B visas for Indian tech workers, proclaiming “legal immigration is great” while diluting the wages of American workers. Now this crap. He also denounced Trump’s desire to withdraw troops from Afghanistan and Syria. Don’t be fooled by the eye patch.
Whether a recent millenial vet or a senior officer who attended military post-graduate school....veteran candidates are not taught conservatism at any point in their careers. A military pedigree is increasingly unreliable in proving a candidate one of our kind.
In reality the military is just a bureaucracy. People who move up in the military are bureaucrats and have learned to play the game.
