Background:

  1. President Barack Obama arrived in L’Aquila, Italy today to participate in the Annual G8 Summit to meet with leaders from Canada, the Russian Federation, France, Germany, Japan, Italy, and the United Kingdom.

    Climate change is expected to be one of the top issues discussed and could result in a global goal of “cutting greenhouse gas emissions by 50 percent by 2050.”

  1. The Democrats' National Energy Tax Legislation, H.R. 2454, will spike electricity bills, send jobs overseas and devastate the United State’s economy – while doing nothing to stop climate change.

  1. The Republican American Energy Act (H.R. 2846) is an all-of-the-above approach that includes renewable energy sources, such as wind, solar, hydropower, nuclear and biomass, while also producing more American-made oil and natural gas.  This is the best way to grow our economy, create new high-paying jobs, protect our environment, and provide affordable energy.
