It’s a good day.”.

“Well, you can,” the governor said.

But criticism needs to be timed right, he said.

miners and refiners won’t be able to churn out enough steel, iron and lithium for manufacturers and developers to all cash in on the new federal law’s generous Buy-American incentives, Inslee said.

And while he said federal permitting reform is needed to speed up energy deployment and restrict the not-in-my-backyard types’ ability to veto vital infrastructure, any deal to do so that comes with new fossil fuel megaprojects would struggle to earn his vote, were he still serving in his previous role as one of his state’s U.S?

On the day it passed in Congress, you called the Inflation Reduction Act “historic,” but said, “We need more if we are to fully meet America’s commitments under the Paris Climate Accords.” You said President Biden should take executive actions.

While the state’s Supreme Court decided in 2020 that the law the rule was based on did not give state regulators the authority over “indirect” emitters such as gas utilities and oil refineries, a spokesman for Inslee said later in a text message that “the governor was saying the president does have that kind of authority under the federal Clean Air Act.”].

Senate Democrats announced a separate “side deal” on permitting reform, in hopes of reducing how easily opponents can stop certain infrastructure projects from going through.

But I do believe that we need to have particularly more rapid siting of clean-energy infrastructure.

This is very important because the federal act is only as good as the implementation, which is to a significant degree at the local level.

If there’s some side deal that allows massive fossil fuel infrastructure to be developed, that’s problematic.

We just can’t build 50-year investments that lock us into increased fossil fuel usage at this point.

As you said, much of the IRA will need to be implemented at the state level.

States need to join my state in what we’ve done, where we do have a regulatory approach.

We need states to do all of those things on top of and faster than this federal legislation.

It’s not just implementation of this federal legislation?

States need to be masters of their own destiny.

Is there an experience you’ve had that you can think of that offers a good example of how you can get that buy-in without delaying important infrastructure.

I’m not concerned about that because Alex has been a very effective leader in clean energy, and the people honor it.

That’s why he’s going to crush his opponent, and did in the primary.

And he’s going to get reelected very handily.

So, if it is a referendum, it’s a referendum with a really good moral to the story.

People want clean energy, they want clean air to breathe, they recognize the economic future creating jobs in their communities around clean energy and electric cars, and Alex is providing that.

It’s going to be a happy ending in that district.

We’re winning races on clean energy and climate now.

He’s going to go on to recreate that in the general.

Alex is very talented, he’s done a great job, and he’s a good listener to his community?

I’m more concerned about the side deals for huge new fossil fuel infrastructure to go on, like giant pipelines.

Basically it’s just using a banking strategy to make capital available to startup companies with new technologies that might be a little riskier than the private sector is willing to take, but imminently needed given the pace of innovation that we need.

To adopt that type of strategy, we’re going to need new technology, we’re going to need new small businesses to develop some groundbreaking systems
